An Olympic Dilemma

  1. 1. An Olympic Dilemma W Wihapi
  2. 2. Decide what your task is by reading this conversation between the two NewZealand Olympic Committee CEO’s. Hello, is Omar there please? Omar Gosh? Are you there? Yes Mr Tee. I am here. What’s up now? Not another withdrawn athlete again? No, something even worse! I’ve lost my car keys again! Did you try in the fridge, next to the orange juice?[A few seconds later…] Oh, how did they get in here?!?! Oh yeah, we don’t have a venue for twoevents. What?? Oh no. So we are short of two venues for the Olympics. Does it matter which two events?No, if we could find one more venue for one of the sports, then we could shuffle all the other sportsaround the rest of the country. OK, so we need a venue that could cater for one Olympic sport. And they would worry about all the other finer details of hosting an event? Yes, they would need to take care of all the fine details. Shall I send an email with what they need to do. Yes, they will need to make sure they cover what is needed. Ok then. Turei out!
