I was given the honour to lead the Paraguayan London 2012 Olympians and when I was told this, to say I was in shock and awe to be given this fascinating role would be an understatement.
The journey started in January 2012 and we was told numerous times by the 'Wonder-man Creative genius' Danny Boyle to #SAVETHESURPRISE, we were all sworn to secrecy and told not to disclose anything. This was a challenge for me due to my immense excitement, the urge not to tweet, or put a status update on FB was no doubt tempting.
The London 2012 Opening ceremony was a huge success the reviews have been amazing, celebration of our British culture and it was the most stunning and captivating opening ceremony to any Olympic Games. More than one billion people around the world watched Danny Boyle’s astonishing and fantastical journey through British history which kicked off the London 2012 Games.
The experience was surreal and out of this world, so PROUD to be a part of it.
