Volunteering at the Olympic Games 2012
If you saw the Olympics Opening Ceremony, chances are you also saw Meltwater´s very own Mariah Hamailainen. Out of the 205 women who were chosen to represent each country, Mariah was chosen to lead the Jamaican team with Usain Bolt! Since this was a once in a lifetime opportunity, we asked what it was like to play a role in the opening and closing ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
