To coincide with the start of the official 2012 Summer Olympics in London, employees at The Sands participated in their own weeklong Summer Olympic games! We put together a week of island-inspired Olympic events where employees came out to battle for gold! Throughout these games our staff were completely engaged, true team players and offered tons of camaraderie to their fellow colleagues – it was a wonderful week!
Using the array of resort amenities, watersports equipment and activities that we offer our guests here at The Sands, our 2012 Olympic events were comprised of the following: Beach Volleyball, weightlifting, road cycling using our resort bicycles, tennis, kayak slalom, Hobie Cat sailing, 100 meter beach relay race, Beach Soccer, 200 meter Swim Race, and our very own “Beach Tray Race” – where you were required to run on the beach balancing serving trays that were carrying tropical cocktails!
On the last day of our Olympics even resort guests joined in (including children) for our 3 Legged Race and 100 Meter Sack Race! We ended this epic week with a well deserved Beach BBQ and Awards Ceremony. All in all – every member of our incredible team at The Sands proved that they were stars and worthy of gold!
