I am very excited to be working at the London 2012 Olympic Regatta for the International Rowing Federation's (FISA) media team.
My job will basically consist of interviewing the rowing athletes when they finish their races in order to take official quotes for press, which means I stand on the finish line to watch all the races. It's a hard life, but someone's got to do it!
My degree in Chinese definitely help me get a foot in the door with this job, and I was also fortunate enough to work at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, as well as various international regattas in Europe.
If any other Cambridge alumni are going to be there (other than the five or so athletes that are very likely to be competing), do get in touch via Twitter, @chiara_ferrara.
