‘I’m so proud to be representing my country at an event like this’
A WYCOMBE pharmacist will be partly responsible for making sure our Bucks rowers are in the best shape possible come London 2012, after being chosen as a gamesmaker based at Dorney Lake for the Olympics.
Sunita Gill, who lives in Gerrards Cross and works in Wycombe, was chosen from thousands of applicants to be one of just 100 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to work at the Games.
She said: “It’s really amazing. Thousands applied but I got the email last week saying I was had been chosen – that’s when I thought, ‘wow’.
“It’s so exciting, it’s once in a lifetime. We’ll never get this opportunity again and I’m so proud to be representing my country at an event like this.”
Gill was at Wembley Arena last weekend for the first stage of training for the 40,000 Gamesmakers, but her work has only just started.
A role specific training day takes place on March 10 and a month later she’ll be invited for venue-specific training.
But before all that she’ll be expected to have completed ‘homework’, extensive modules on anti doping, fitness, health and working at a Games venue.
