Yeah, everyone’s excited about the Games. Many young leaders in my area have signed up to volunteer and loads of them got the chance to be part of Lead 2014.

Lead 2014 and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

What have you learnt from volunteering?

I’ve learnt just to have fun, be committed and enjoy the experience.

Yes. I’ve applied.

If so, what are you most looking forward to?

The experience and the atmosphere at the Games!

Which sports star would you most like to see at the Games?

Sir Chris Hoy would be great to see. I never got the chance to see him at the London Olympics, so maybe I will get the chance this time.

What venue would you most like to be stationed at as a volunteer?

Hmmm maybe the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome or the Athletes’ Village.

What sporting competition are you most looking forward to at the Games?
