Yup. It's really getting huge support from the local people. They are looking for people in the areas of:

  • Transportation
  • VIP Reception
  • Award Presentation
  • Media Relations
  • Competition Organisation
  • Medical Services
  • Accomodation
  • Security

I don't mind helping out as a VIP translator. It's an opportunity to give out namecards. Ahahahaha!!!

For all those here who've put their name down as volunteers, good luck! It appears that BOCOG has far more than they neeed:

BEIJING, Feb 2, 2007 (AFP) - More than 320,000 people have applied to be volunteers for next year's Beijing Olympics, triple the number needed, state media said Friday.

About half the applicants are students and teachers from Beijing-based universities while the rest are people who live in Beijing and other parts of the country, the First newspaper reported, citing the Games' organisers.

The Beijing Organising Committee for the 2008 Games only wanted 70,000 volunteers to serve at the Olympics and another 30,000 for the Paralympics.

The organisers started accepting applications for volunteers from Beijing residents in August last year, then opened the process up nationally on January 19.

Even though supply has already far exceeded demand, Olympic organisers intend to allow people overseas to apply to be volunteers from March, according to the paper.
