Just got back from London 2012 & wanted to post a few pics from the trip. The entire Fifi and Jules show team set off from Australia to London on the Friday before the games, and from the minute we landed at Heathrow we went non stop!
The body clock was pretty messed up. We were waking up at 2pm Aus time (5am London) & working through to around 9am the next day Aus time. As I write this I’m back in Australia and still struggling to get to sleep before 3am !! Im also readjusting to not having a GoPro strapped to my head (yep i lost a bet on facebook and was forced to wear “headcam” for the entire trip!)
Having lived in London for 2 years when I worked at XFM, it was awesome to see the city in full Olympic mode. She’s never looked better. Mad props to everyone in the city from the taxi drivers to the Olympic Volunteers to the Military personnel …it ran like clockwork.
We checked out Boxing at Excel Arena, Badminton at Wembley Arena & Beach Volleyball at Horse Guards Parade….that event was the highlight. They really put on a show for the crowd with live DJ’s, dancing girls, a hype guy and crowd interaction.
Away from the events we helped Jules run the actual Olympic Marathon circuit (he finished!), went rowing on the Thames, booked out our own double decker bus across the city (balllin) & with Fifis influence did a little too much shopping.
Massive thanks to our crew at Southern Cross Austereo for helping us bring the vibe of the olympic city back to Australia over a massive week of radio shows!
