I was a Runner for The Sydney Olympics
Was tidying my office & came across my ID card for the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Yes, as the card says I was a runner, but not in a race. My volunteer job was to take the printed results to the press center. This did not involve running, but more walking than expected. The electric golf cart which was to be used was too heavy for the temporary floor installed, as fell through the day before my first night of training. In the end I did not actually get to the Olympics, as I was asked to be a witness in a human rights case concerning the web design. While my Olympics job was voluntary, and did not involve web design, I thought it prudent to resign, to avoid any perception of a conflict of interest.
