Ever wanted the whole world to hear your sports play-by-play?
Ever thought to be a commentator but your tongue gets twisted when you try to talk that fast?
Nowâ€™s your chance to jump straight to the Olympics no less, even without a Sports Channel CV!
If youâ€™re already booked to go to China to either participate (good luck!) or watch The Games (good for you!), then we may have an offer you canâ€™t refuse. Weâ€™re looking for fringsters at the Olympics to share their experiences with the rest of us less-lucky folks who wonâ€™t see it live and who canâ€™t be glued to our TVs while at work or running around all day!
We will happily provide the fring Olympics commentators with a 3.5G mobile phone with GPS, camera, local SIM card and (almost) unlimited data plan. In return, the fringCommentator will regularly micro-blog with quick updates & pictures (the winner, the loser, the cutest flag-bearer, the poor girl who lost her swimsuit, the poor guy who dropped the baton in the 4×100 meter finalâ€¦ you get the idea). If youâ€™re a real sports enthusiast you may focus more on the records; if youâ€™re more of a night owl, we may all live vicariously through your night-time escapades in the Olympic village – pics & videos most welcome!
Interested fringentators should apply here with a quick intro why youâ€™d like to play and why you can share regular captivating microblogs from China with other fringsters worldwide. Remember to include your fring ID so we can discuss details.
