With one week to go before the start of the London 2012 Olympics, Bloom has some exciting Olympic news. Anna, one of our client servicing team, can finally reveal that she will be performing in both the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Keen to know more we've managed to interrogate her between client meetings and rehearsals for a quick 5 questions in 5 minutes.
Q: So Anna, what are you going to be doing?
A: My title is "Placard Bearer" in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies which basically consists of leading athletes round the stadium.
Q: Sounds exciting. How did it all come about?
A: It all started in April 2011 - I saw an advert on the Olympic website inviting people 'to get involved in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies". After I applied, I was called for a dancing audition which was a bit of a concern as I am NOT a dancer - I think that soon became apparent at the audition, because they changed my role to a Placard Bearer!
Q: What's your overall verdict of what you've seen so far?
A: Amazing! Crazy, unpredictable and very entertaining.
Q: Looking forward to it. Do you secretly wish you're dancing now?
A: The dance routine will amazing on the night but I'm really happy with my section. It's probably best that I'm not dancing.
Q: And finally, can you tell us a Bloom exclusive? For example, what nation will you be presenting or what colour is your outfit?
A: mmm... Can't really tell you anything - but it's definitely not one specific colour. (That narrows it down) All will be revealed on the night...
So true to her obligations she's being tight lipped about the detail. We tried.
Good luck Anna! We're sure you will do your adopted nation proud. We'll be looking out for you in what will no doubt be the greatest global spectacle of the year.
