The next Olympic cycle will be upon us before we know it. The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro are approaching, and EN is already outlining our plan of action to bring you the best eventing coverage there is.
There is plenty of advance planning going on for the Olympics, and they’re asking for volunteers to sign up for their duties by December 15. Volunteers will enjoy exposure to the Olympic grounds, plenty of Rio swag, provided meals on working days, and the once in a lifetime experience of working behind the scenes at the Olympics.
If you’re interested in being a Rio volunteer (we’re sure there will be equestrian opportunities!), here are the qualifications:
- Must be 18 years old by February 28, 2016
- Must be available for 10 days during the Olympics and/or Paralympic Games
- Have completed basic education – this is not mandatory
- Have availability during the selection and training process, which will take up to three full days
Visit the Rio Volunteer page here to find more information about the volunteer opportunities available, and don’t forget to sign up by December 15.
