Last week (22 January – 25 January 2012), enVirtua was involved in the delivery of the 2012 Commonwealth Judo Championships in Cardiff, Wales.
For us, it involved one 39 hour day and another 20 hour day.
We delivered not only the website, but the onsite infrastructure for the event, liaising with the technical staff at the Wales Millenium Centre, the tournament organisers and the representatives of the European Judo Union running the tournament and streaming it live onto the internet.
Working a live sporting event is very challenging and very rewarding. We were involved in everything from running CAT5 and RG59 cabling, through to setting up laptops and internet connectivity.
Events like this are not part of our regular day to day roles, so it was a great challenge to help the small organisational team put on a spectacular event that has featured on S4C TV in Wales and next month shall feature on SkySports across the UK.
We would like to thank all the volunteers, officials and athletes who helped make the event special.
