Meet the 2010WWRC Staff: Communications

It’s nearly 7 months until the 2010 World Wheelchair Rugby Championships and we’re hard at work trying to put together a great world championship experience come September. We thought, however, that we should take a moment to introduce ourselves so that you’ll know who to contact if you have any questions, concerns or feedback. (Or, if you’re just curious who’s answering your Facebook posts or your tweets).

Today, we’ll introduce you to the communication staff for the 2010 World Wheelchair Rugby Championships: the people who are responsible for the Twitter and Facebook updates, the press releases and basically anything that helps to get the word out about what a great sport wheelchair rugby is so that the stands in the Richmond Oval will be filled with adoring fans this September.

Who is Rick Hansen?

Last night, the Olympic torch was lit at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver to mark the beginning of the Games. Lighting the torch is one of the biggest honours an athlete can receive in sport and for the months leading up to the opening ceremonies there had been rampant speculation about which Canadian would be chosen. In the end, however, it came down to five: Catroina LeMay-Doane, Nancy Greene, Steve Nash, Wayne Gretzky and Paralympian Rick Hansen. After a technical malfunction, Wayne Gretzky lit the torch to declare the Olympics open.

Demolition Derby

We arrived in Birmingham, Alabama late on Monday night. Most of the teams on the tour had left West Palm Beach at the earliest convenience, choosing to get the travel over and done with and recuperate ahead of the next tournament. Unlike the Knock and Roll, the Demolition Derby was taking a more traditional format with two pools and crossovers ahead of a final placing game. An additional quarterfinal stage gave us a total of six more games before our return to the UK.
