Student Project – Free for the Athletes

For me, the experience to be involved in Free for the Athletes was awesome just by the main idea of the project I think it was very creative, interesting and thoughtful for those athletes that don’t have big budgets; and cause it helped me to developed my professional skills, it was very exciting to meet companies some of them are the best ones in their fields and very well know by the people in BC as well as being in contact to this high profile athletes it was just amazing.

From planning to coordinating and closing the project was great: gathering information, talking to managers and directors of great companies, talking with big sport stars, delivering promoting material and talking to people involved in media such as TV, radio, newspaper, etc.

It was fantastic to be involved in an international project!

Quotes – Vancouver 2010 Games

“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.”

– The New York Times

“It’s tough to imagine what could possibly be a greater boost for tourism promotion than a chance to host the Olympics. You couldn’t top this kind of attention with anything short of a celebrity mass-wedding, an extraterrestrial landing or legalized marijuana.”

– BC Business

“Vancouver is a city unlike any other. Wherever I look, I see water or mountain — or both. And everyone looks so healthy .”

– The Daily Telegraph (UK)

“In winter, the heart of downtown [Vancouver] is 30 minutes from the ski slopes. In summer, sun seekers crowd its beaches and seaside promenades. And despite a rain-prone climate, it displays a perpetually sunny disposition. Consider it the supermodel of North American cities.”

– USA Today

“The stadiums are full, the seats are full of passionate fans, the streets are busy and there’s a lot going on … Whether it is ice hockey, curling or speedskating, I haven’t seen an empty seat in the house .”

– The Guardian (UK)

“The venues here and the streets of Vancouver and Whistler are joyful places to be.”

– The Times London (UK)

“A remarkable environment. The license plates read ‘Beautiful British Columbia for a reason. The Sea-to-Sky Highway carries travelers on a jaw-dropping journey from the serenity of Vancouver’s waterfront to the majesty of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.”

– The Buffalo News

“Starting Friday, the world will see a nation best known for mounted police, cold winters and social systems show off its crown jewel.”

– The Denver Post

“… the Games will provide an unprecedented opportunity to experience one of the world’s great destinations.”

– MSNBC.com

“The Sea to Sky Games … will give 3 billion global television viewers a spectacular glimpse of the country’s third largest … and most livable city, which has both a cosmopolitan and outdoorsy feel.”

– The Boston Sunday Globe

“[Visitors] will find the streets of Vancouver, a city of 2 million, so spotless they’ll think Mr. Clean is the mayor.”

– The Miami Herald

“Vancouver is one of North America’s most under-rated tourist destinations. It is a modern, travel-friendly city with a unique mix of cultures. The relatively mild Pacific

Northwest climate and an energetic restaurant and nightlife scene are other features that make this such an attractive city.”
