We recently interviewed Isle of Man based Adam Wright, who was asked to help out at the Archery events at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Please see the interview below:
IOM Stamps: How did you get involved in with the London 2012 Olympics? 
Adam Wright: Steven Taylor who is an Archery Coach in the UK was putting together a team of young games makers for the archery event to carry arrows from the targets back to the archers. Steven Taylor then contacted the Isle of Man Archery Club and asked if they had anyone between ages 16 and 18 who would be able to go to London and Peter and Joy at the archery club asked me if I wanted to do it and I said I could so they put my name down and I was chosen to take part in the Olympics.

IOM Stamps: What was the experience like?

Adam Wright: The experience was very good to see all of the world class archers and the sort of equipment they used and a stadium full of people all very excited about watching the shooting.

IOM Stamps: How did it feel to be part of the event?

Adam Wright: It was exciting to be part of such a massive event and it was an experience that I will never forget as I was very proud to take part.

IOM Stamps: What did you enjoy most?

Adam Wright: The thing that I enjoyed the most was getting to see the archers shoot and being part of the atmosphere in Lord’s
