Whilst on his break from University, he was given the opportunity to work as security for the London 2012 Olympic Games.   Billed as the greatest show on earth and following months of training, he arrived at the Olympic Park.   Relocating to London for two months was great fun visiting venues and bumping into Athletes became an everyday occurrance.  John was promoted to Team Leader after two weeks in charge of patrolling venues.   The festival atmosphere around London made for a thoroughly enjoyable time, making friends from across the world and is opening new horizons.   Everything went off without a hitch and he's proud to look back and say "I was there".  John is the son of Paul Sherwood and Deborah and great-great grandson of Mary Tinneny of Goladuff.
