The Winter World Masters Games 2020 are in full swing here in Innsbruck. Action is going wild not only in various sporting competitions, but behind the curtains as well. Every day our volunteer team tirol is working to the best of their abilities to make sure all the athletes and guests of the Games have the most wonderful experience and plenty of unforgettable moments to reminisce about later.
WWMG should know their heroes. Welcoming atmosphere, shared joy, positive energy tangible in the air – all that and more, first of all, is due to the joint effort of volunteers doing their best to offer support to each and every participant of the Games all the way up.
Today we took time to chat with some of the volunteers to bring you their inspiring stories.
Angine, a volunteer at an Information Desk, told us about the motivation that has driven her to work at the WWMG 2020: “I think that experience to be here and to work with these people is so nice and we have to come out of our comfort zone and see how everything works behind big events. I really love to be here”.
Another volunteer, Reinhard, from Starter Package, shared his thoughts on contestants of the Games “All athletes are special guests here. It doesn’t matter where they come from, for us they are all very important”.
Juana at Accreditation Centre pointed out the most interesting moments of volunteering at WWMG 2020 “Meeting some Polish athletes and surprising them by speaking Polish with them… translating from Russian, because I know it too. I hope that I will go back here once more to participate in another event as part of the volunteer team tirol.”
Overall, volunteers of different ages and nationalities came together here in Innsbruck to generate this incredible energy without which the Winter World Masters Games 2020 would not feel the same.
