Wow.... I can't believe it was three years ago. Doesn't time just fly...?

I too was a volunteer at the Olympics and you brought back a vivid memory of those 'appetizing' free meals that we recieved.

I never actually wanted to be a volunteer, it was just a case that I had spent Easter 2004 in the company of 'certain people' who were very high up in the ATHOC.

We'd been talking about the upcoming games and it was suggested that I should volunteer as it would be much fun. So me being all nice and polite said "oh that'd be great, I'd love too" and then thought nothing more about it.

Then I recieved a phone call in July to ask if I wanted to go to the Olympic Stadium in Marousi or to the Schinias rowing. I remember thining at the time "uh oh" and said I'd go to the stadium but then when the reply was "tell me what size uniform you want and you can pick it up from my house". I realized there was no turning back so I gave it serious thought and decided to go to Schinias instead.

But despite the 5AM starts, I loved my time as a Olympic volunteer.

It sounds like you did too and that's a great story you shared with us!
