At my shift today, security called me over to approve something (which I have no authority to do…haha). There was a group of Slovenians in crazy costumes that security wasn’t sure if they were allowed to wear, based on IOC rules. I tried to explain that I was only there to count the number of people coming through and that I didn’t actually know the rules/work for the IOC, but they didn’t understand. Eventually, they just decided to let them in.
When they got up to the seating area, everyone was understandably asking to take pictures with them. I think they got sick of it, but that’s part of what happens when you dress up at the Olympics 🙂
