Hello again. The last time we spoke things were just about to get started at the 2012 Olympics. We were eagerly anticipating the opening ceremony and had our Fiverr-personalized Olympic gear out and ready for action.
Well, now we’re in the full swing of things. The opening ceremony was a huge success. The Queen jumped out of a helicopter with James Bond, J.K. Rowling read us a story and Paul McCartney closed the ceremony with a Beatles’ classic.
Theatrics aside, some sportsmen and women are already serving up some major cases of whoop ass. We’ve already fallen in love with gymnast John Orozco. At age 7 he went to his first gym class in the Bronx and twelve years later he’s wowing us all, performing more spins than a ballerina on speed.
Speaking of speed, did you watch the french swimming team overtake the USA team at the very last moment? It had us all at the edge of our seats. (I’m not a great swimmer, but that’s because it has never been more than half an hour since my last meal).
All that aside, it’s time to focus on our next Olympic ring and therefore another region of the world.
Timon and Pumbaa were right on target when they sang those famous words… Hakuna Matata! You guessed it, our next region is none other than Africa! With that comes 5 Fiverr-tastic Gigs to customise your Olympic experience and make your lives that much more enjoyable.
Ready? Here we go…
1) Chug, chug, chug! (South Africa)
Beer drinking isn’t an official Olympic sport… but we think it should be! OK, that may not happen anytime soon, but Justamobile will still help you impress your friends with the secret to chugging a 500ml beer in just 2-5 seconds.
2) What’s cooking, good looking? (South Africa)
So, you want to have a bunch of buddies over to watch the Olympics and enjoy a great meal. Only problem, you hate looking for recipes and feel overwhelmed. Brandnewcycle to the rescue. Not only will she plan a 3 course meal for you, she’ll also provide you with the recipes and a preparation plan. Delicious!
3) Run run, as fast as you can (Kenya)
The long distance runners to watch during the Olympics are from Kenya, a country with a rich tradition of producing incredible track athletes. Kenya won 14 medals four years ago in the Beijing Olympics. Their secret? We don’t know for sure but maybe they’re reading Rosepearl’s guide to marathon secrets.
4) Kenya all the way!(Kenya)
If you’re trying to spread a message in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, you may not be as successful as their running team. Don’t worry, Deshinali has this area covered. She will post 100 of your posters around the city. Talk about spreading the message!
5) Starry Starry Night (Algeria)
While the only gold medal we gonna see this Olympic season is through a television set, that still won’t prevent us from becoming stars! From sports to the streets of LA, Bassemjaber will get your name written on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (kinda). This makes an awesome gift!
South Africa, Kenya and everywhere in between - we’ve got you covered this Olympic season. Keep you checking on the blog, as we soon focus on another region participating in the Olympic Games 2012.
