As 2012 is Olympic year, the school games organisers wanted to establish a link. So this year the games are being held in May in London with three sports based at the Olympic Park and the majority of the others at Excel. I'm lucky enough to be involved again as team manager for Badminton Wales http://www.badmintonwales.net After our success in the team event last year we have high hopes of further medals again in 2012.
As a team manager my games started today at an orientation session with team staff from other sports. It's a good opportunity to catch up with old friends and network with new people as well as getting to grips with the games logistics. Most of the hard work for me happens before the event and behind the scenes. It's the sort of role that only gets noticed if the proverbial hits the fan...consequently I'm hoping to maintain a low profile!
