其实我的奥运志愿者生活已经在2008年8月17日凌晨结束了。从7月8日到8月17日,一个多月的志愿者工作给我留下了非常多的回忆。但由于忙于准备考试,结束后就一直没整理过当时的东西。前天考完后终于有了一点点时间。赶紧整理一下。

向来也不擅于写点什么,而且时间也不是很多。先把整理过的照片传上来吧:

又得进入紧张的学习生活中去了。这一学期可能将会是我大学中最重要的一个学期。要加油了!

不知不觉8月6日晚上我们的奥运会真的开始了。日本-新西兰,挪威-美国两场女足小组赛正式拉开了秦皇岛赛区“北京2008奥运会”的序幕。

值得高兴的是,测试赛中出现的大部分问题确实在赛前解决了。至少换了一个送餐的公司,全部送盒饭到办公室,不再去那个小食堂挤,把吃饭问题解决了。另外安保那的协调问题似乎也差不多解决了。总之两天的比赛下来,面子上没出什么问题。可喜可贺:)

另外8月5日那天,中国移动真的履行了之前的承诺,给我们每一位志愿者发了一部TD-SCDMA手机。我领到的是一部ZTE中兴U85,并且卡里给了180块钱的话费。当然要求也是有的:每月28元套餐,至少在网一年。而且每两周得登录一次移动的网站做问卷。不过28块钱包括150分钟市话、来电显和10M流量,外带单向收费。手机支持Java,用UCWEB或Opera mini上网还是很爽的。总之手机发的还比较实在,不像我们志愿者服装,连官方公布的那一套都没发齐。

PS:博客用的服务器最近出了点问题,前两天一直要密码才能打开页面。现在已经恢复正常。另外数据库好像发生的回档,7月28号之后的数据全没了。郁闷的是这正好发生在我自动备份的一个周期之内,备份出来的数据没有28之后的那几篇文章。没办法,只好用RSS阅读器里的内容进行恢复。但可惜评论丢了一个。

When talking about the Beijing 2008 Olympics, we would think of its slogan – “One World, One Dream” and the three concepts – “Green Olympics, High-tech Olympics and People’s Olympics”. Without doubt, all these ideas are great for holding such an international games and show the decision of the government that it would do something to change the old image people have of the Chinese governments. Without observation of how’s Beijing carrying out its promises, however, as an Olympic volunteer I actually know clearly that things are not all go with them in Qinhuangdao, the co-host city of Beijing Olympic Games.

One of the three concepts violated in Qinhuangdao is the “High-tech Olympics”. I work in the Competition Information Department and all information about the competition will be sent to us and handed out to those who need it. As I thought before the work started, there would be a computer-based information management system which could help gathering and distributing information and that’s surely what a “High-tech Olympic” calls for. However, on the first day I got to my work place, I found I was wrong. There’s no such software and most computers of the offices were not even connected in one network! All information could be sent only by hand or by the only fax in our office. Our main work is to photocopy the notices and schedules and walk over the office building to send them. And if some of them are urgent we had to run to save time! I don’t thing that any one could think that this is “high-tech” and even “green” as we are using lots of paper for copying files.

But even though, I prefer to believe that this is only happened in Qinhuangdao. Because as far as I know, the preparation of the football matches of the Olympiad in Qinhuangdao is almost held separately. Except for the initial training and providing necessary materials, Beijing doesn’t control the preparing work in Qinhuangdao. So how the daily work is done is decided by officials of Qinhuangdao.

Perhaps there are too much co-host cities in this Olympic Games, which could cause things out of control. And making all these cities to act at the same level is really difficult. After all they are not all so developed cities like Beijing and Hong Kong.

With less and less days left before the Olympic Games, we competition information department’s fellows were working a much longer time than the initial days.

Teams that will take competition here arrived in Qinhuangdao one after another. And we must passed the team’s training plan to relevant departments in the first time. However, some teams didn’t arrive so early that when they settled down and began to plan their training, it was quite late. Thus we waited for a training plan till 10 at night the day before yesterday. Starting from 8:30 at morning, I spent the entire day for about 14 hours in Olympic Center. It would be the longest working time record of my life till now.

Although it was true that I would sometimes feel boring during the long time of duty, I was fortunatelly able to see how the entire work was held. By watching how groups cooperated with each other and problems the met, I deeply understood the importance of effective communication that even though every each group was formed by elites and could perfectly accomplish the own job, there could still be lots of problems coming about when they worked together.

Hoping that there would be no team arrived at night next time I am on duty, and less problem arised in the cooperation of different departments.

昨天在秦皇岛奥体中心,中国女足与新西兰女足举行了一场公开测试赛。关于这场比赛各媒体都有相关报道,我也确实为曲飞飞感到惋惜。但作为一名志愿者,我感受最深的是另一面──比赛准备工作。而在这一面上,秦皇岛这座奥运协办城市确实不能算作是准备好了。甚至这场奥运会之前最后一次测试赛都没能称之为成功举办!

在我看来,一场体育比赛要想算作成功,至少得满足两个条件:1.运动员比出水平。2.观众看得高兴。一场比赛的举办也无非是在努力实现这两个目标。

但在我们这里的准备工作中,我发现注意力似乎过于集中在运动员身上了。运动员各式各样的需求我们都有专门的人员进行负责。而且不管什么样的需求都会尽力去满足。甚至于他们没想到的地方我们也有做过准备。运动员渴了,休息室有各种各样的饮料,饿了,有一大把吃的。运动员带来两个泡脚的木桶,我们给派车从回驻地。曲飞飞受伤了,一辆“大奔”救护车立马给送到医院。

而观众那边呢?据做SPS的同学告诉我,直到比赛上半场结束,都有持票观众没能入场。原因居然是安检效率不行,大量观众被卡在安检口那里。另外一个问题是大部分时间观众服务志愿者只有不到一半在岗,另一半做什么去了呢?排队吃饭中,一顿饭吃掉了两个小时!后勤的饭果然赛时也跟不上。少了一半的SPS志愿者,观众服务能跟得上吗?

另外各部门的协调工作也有不少问题。比赛总协调的车没等来开道的警车,给工作人员送饭的车被安检挡在外面进不来,观众服务与安保的种种冲突……

按理说最后一次公开测试赛要做的应该是检查工作有没疏漏,绝大部分准备工作应该万无一失才对。但现在给人的感觉却是大部分工作都有问题,很多工作则是很有问题。离奥运会只有半个月的时间了,中间也没有这种大规模的公开测试赛了。现在的状况让人确实为秦皇岛能否成功举办奥足赛捏一把汗。

刚吃完饭回来,感觉极其不爽。

上午干了一上午活,11点一刻去吃饭,居然到12点半多才吃回来。 其中绝大部分时间我们是在烈日下排队!

且不说作为一名奥运会志愿者我们应该享受的待遇,现在这种后勤都已经影响到我们的正常工作了。中午一顿饭吃一个小时也许只能算是浪费时间的问题,晚上比赛前那一顿以这种效率,这比赛就没法正常举行了。

上一次测试赛我们运动员服务的志愿者就因此没有吃饭。

现在我们面临的现状是:去早点排一长队,去晚点则不是没饭就是没菜。上千志愿者(比赛当天会有近两千)只能在一个小餐厅吃饭。而且只有两个打饭口。去得晚的得等到前面的吃完才能进去。饭菜的质量也就是比食堂能稍微好一点点。

还记得02年暑假我到北京参加夏令营,同样是一千多人。 但在吃饭问题上组织地十分有续。大家分不同的时段就餐,秩序维护地非常良好,半个小时内绝对搞定。而那仅仅是北大经管院组织的一个夏令营。

秦皇岛作为奥运会唯一的一个地级协办城市,在很多方面确实还是有不小的差距的。

PS:我们的志愿者服装也没能发到官网上发布的全套。

补充:晚饭靠我们伟大的戴老师集体打的盒饭回办公室,总算没耽误事。不过男生基本都没吃饱。

Though it seemed that there were quite a few days before the Olympic Games, we Competition Administration Office had already become very busy. In all the last three days, we could not even sit in the chairs for continuous five minutes.

Sally, our department superviser, our office manager and I got off work at 9pm the night before yesterday. And it was just for a piece of notice which we didn’t  make well enough to satisfy the high quality demand of our director. Each time we sent the impoved version of it to the director, she would found out some new flaws. Each one of we four got criticized at least three times that night. That really taught us a big lession of making good work.

The following two days after that night, we processed all kinds of information all day long. I really felt tired physically after getting back, but I could also feel that we were working more and more adroitly these days.

It will be another busy day tomorrow, for we are having a public practice game. Hoping that everything will go better.

We held a close door test game this day. All the volunteers and guards came to work. But unfortunately it wasn’t a pleasant day for many of us. There were lots of things to do before we can really welcome the OG.

The first and the most important problem is training of the volunteers. There were many volunteers especially those of the SPS group did know enough of their work.  For several times, I was blocked off by them to the area where I had right to get in.

Then even eating became a problem. There were hundreds of volunteers that would eat here. But we just had two dining room and neither of them were very big. When the dining time came, a long queue appeared. We had to wait quite a long time before we could even get in

And many more problems were exposed this day. I saw some but there must be more I hadn’t seen.

There wasn’t much time before the Olympic Games, We had much to do to hold a successful Olympic Game.

PS: I am a volunteer in Qinhuangdao, not Beijing. I just said what happened here.

Got very tired this day. It’s not because our department’s shared work but much surface work that made all us so busy. We welcomed our mayor this morning and made a big arrangement of our office. And then we were told some superior of the nation will come tomorrow. Everything in the Olympic Center must be cleared up then rearranged.

For this reason, we started our work at 1:30 pm which was an hour earlier than our regular schedule. unfortunately, almost everything in our office was not neat and tidy enough to be checked. Our desktops were all at sixes and sevens. Those wires of our computers went everywhere. The copying machine was place in the way people passing. Some more flowcharts should be hang on the wall. Oh, were there anything we done right in the past month?

As a chinese, I was really not like the superiors especially those from the governments. Each time when a superior would come, we common people had to do much extra work to “welcome” them. From my elementary school time till now, such things had never changed even when we had been doing quite well in the daily work. I really hoped that there was one day in which we could just stand up and say hello to the superior without any extra preparing work when the “important man” came.

As arranged yesterday, Sally and I were on duty this day. We were late and scolded harshly by Mr. Bai who was our superviser. But we had really not been noticed that we should be there before 8:30. This was truly not a good experience with the new superviser. I didn’t think a manager should scold his underlings especially with other people seeing around. We were all adults now. Everyone had self-respect and we wanted to do thing well. If we did something wrong, you could just tell me and I was sure to do it right next time. A leader as the title’s word means should “lead” his subordinates, tell them what they were supposed to do and inspirit them to achieve the team’s vision.

After some time he explained to us why he became so angry and appeased us. We were off of power all this district most of the day, even the Olympic Center. The electricty was on the time he arrived and there was a fax to be sent by us. Before we arrieved all the building went dark. So the fax could never got its destination on time.

What’s more, Mr. Bai is a football teacher in a football school. Perhaps years of treating naughty boys made his used to scolding students. We ought to get well with each other in the following days.
