YOG photographer gets a ringside seat for London 2012 test events
Life has been a bit of a whirlwind for our YOG photographer, Billy Rowlinson, since he won the opportunity to snap the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore last year, with opportunities and invites flooding his way. His next stop on this rollercoaster journey: the London 2012 Olympic Games.
In preparation for the Games, Londoner Billy recently got snap-happy at a series of test events, including fencing, boxing, table tennis, judo, weightlifting and taekwondo, at London’s Excel Centre.
Speaking about the experience, Billy told me: “I went to the test events so I could get an idea of how the events will run next year. I'm so glad I did, as the photo manager at the venue got me a ringside seat for the boxing, which saw me leaning inside the ring with my camera. It was quite scary, but I got some awesome shots.”
