I don’t know about you but I cannot wait until the Olympics. I’ve always been a huge fan and wrote my dissertation about them and worked at the Games in Atlanta in 1996. I am counting down until they start and I will be holding out to watch the athletics and most importantly (to me) the running.
Unfortunately as the Games are in London and I am here in Oz it’s going to prove to be an issue since the UK is 9 hours behind and we’ll have to be watching in the middle of the night, but I found and downloaded a great app for my iPhone by can you believe it – Vegemite.
The app basically enables you to select a wake up call from two of Australia’s most rousing cheerleaders – Laurie Lawrence or Dave Hughes – to coincide with any time or Olympic event. You can also select your sport and decide how much time you need to wake up, grab a coffee and sit and watch, and for you nerds out there it will show up to the minute medal tallies showing the top ten countries – so hopefully the UK and Australia will be on there!
The free app is called Wake Up and Smell the Vegemite and is available to download for iPhone and Android from http://www.vegemite.com.au. Or, go directly to iTunes or Google Play and search for ’Vegemite’.
Not long to go now! I can’t wait!
