    Olympics from the inside


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter Gaya3in1 worked relentlessly from the day London won the right to host the Olympics (in 2005) to play a part in the opening ceremony.

    “After 2 rounds of auditions, I got the call I had worked so hard for. Then months and months of rehearsals in rain, hail and scorching sun began. It all culminated on that day, July 27th.”

    “We arrived early around 2pm and helped each other get ready and were running around frantically taking pictures and saying our hellos and goodbyes (as till that day it hadn't quite dawned on us).”

    “I like this one the most as it has performers from different categories [Gaya is the nurse] -- a snap shot of the ceremony -- and reminds me of the excitement of the day, clearly visible on everyone's faces.”
    - mjponsford, CNN iReport producer

    I participated in the Olympic ceremony and this picture, taken back stage, with performers from different categories captures the colourfulness and the variety of the day for me.
