The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia just wrapped up. I had been meaning to post this image when the games started but finally got around to it now — when the games ended. (I’ve been pretty weak on posting images so far this year.)
Working the Games of the XXX Olympiad was an incredible experience. I did not get the invitation this year but I had several friends and co-workers who did. They had nothing but good stories to share and didn’t have to break out of any bathrooms or deal with brown tap water. (On the final day one did have his iPad stolen, but he was pretty “meh” about it.)
My fingers are crossed I’ll be invited down to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Summer Games. If I don’t get the call I’ll be firmly planted on the couch watching the coverage. Being at The Games has given me a new respect for the athletes, the city holding the event event and my “bothers and sisters” who are involved in getting those images out.
Speaking of images, I took the above picture on the one “off day” I had while in London. The Tower Bridge, showing the Olympic Rings, is lit up in celebration of the 2012 Olympic Games.
