Our WI Events
Olympic Games Makers
Fairwarp WI re-lived the thrill of the London 2012 Games at its meeting in January, when it was joined by two Games Makers.
Members were enthralled to hear stories from ‘behind the scenes’ from Mark Powles and Nigel Shadforth. Nigel, a friend of Fairwarp’s former President Angela Tilly, had been deployed at the bus station for the Olympic Village – making sure all the Olympians and Paralympians got to the right place on time.
Mark, partner to Fairwarp WI member Jane Rhodes, was in the dope testing team in the Olympic stadium. He was chaperone to many medal winning athletes including the 100 meter men’s final bronze medallist Justin Gatlin from the USA. He recalled how slightly surreal it felt sitting with Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake (the silver medallist) and Justin while waiting for their turn to be tested.
Remembering those wonderful weeks last summer and hearing how proud the Games Makers were to have taken part brought back to members all those proud and patriotic feelings they had felt at the time.
