Clyde-sider of the week - Nicky Price
Feature

Where are you from?

Norwich.

Are people in Norwich excited about Glasgow 2014?

Yes, definitely. I know a few athletes from Norfolk who are training hard and hoping to make it to Glasgow 2014, too!

What Clyde-sider role have you been offered?

Press Conference Facilitator.

Where will you be based?

In the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

What are you most looking forward to about your role?

I'm looking forward to playing a key role in setting up press conferences involving world-class cyclists and doing all I can to ensure the press conferences go smoothly for the media teams from all over the Commonwealth. I also can't wait to experience the atmosphere of the velodrome!

Why did you want to be a Clyde-sider?

I wanted to be at the heart of the Games – to really get involved!

I just couldn't keep away from London 2012. I went to see seven sports and I worked for BBC Nations and Regions at the Paralympics. There really is no atmosphere quite like that of a major multi-sport event. Having seen what a huge part the Gamesmakers played in London, I really wanted to experience a volunteering role in Glasgow. I can't wait to join the team and to do my bit to help the Games run smoothly. I want to be the smiley, helpful volunteer who can help the reporters out as much as possible!

Have you visited Glasgow before? If so, what’s your favourite thing about the city?

My only visit so far was on the day of my interview. I was lucky with the weather – it was a lovely sunny day! I sat outside in George Square. There was a great atmosphere there. I'm looking forward to sampling some of the many tempting restaurants that I saw while I was in Glasgow!

If you won a Gold medal, what would your celebration song be?

Viva la Vida by Coldplay – an awesome anthem!

Can you sum up what you think Glasgow 2014 will be like in three words?

Inspiring, thrilling, friendly!
