Olimpíadas: de Barcelona à Pequim

08/08/08
Daqui a 8 horas começa oficialmente as Olimpíadas¹ de Pequim².

Sempre gostei mais delas do que da Copa. Eu deliro em casa nesses 15 dias de maratonas de jogos.

A primeira Olimpíada que me lembro foi a de Barcelona 92.

Cobi Barcelona 1992 
De 92 me lembro que assistia os jogos na minha beliche, na cama de cima, comendo bolacha Maria (eu era bem criança, tá?!). Me lembro tb de alguns jogos de Handbol que assistia na sala.

A outra olimpíada, de Atlanta em 96, não mexeu tanto comigo.  Atlanta1996

Estavamos mudando de casa. Lembro da vinheta da Globo com o Casagrande cheio de bandeiras e de alguns jogos de basquete.

Mas foi nas olimpíadas de Atlanta que descobri que colecionar pins nessas épocas de jogos é o máximo do máximo. Eu ia no shopping com meu irmão a procura dos pins para completar minha coleção.

Mas foi em 2000 que me apaixonei de forma definitiva por aberturas de olimpíadas. Sydney foi a melhor e a mais gostosa de de ver. Era de noite. Acompanhava tudo.

    sydney2000

Já estava morando no apto que moro atualmente, tinhamos uma sala de televisão (que já não existe mais) e era o dia inteiro com a tv ligada. Ah, eu tb gravava tudo: gravei a cerimônia de abertura (tenho até hoje as duas fitas gravadas com a festa).

Aliás, as fitas se chamam: Balas, jujubas e xadrez.

Balas e Jujubas pq comprávamos por kilo e colocavamos em um baleiro para comer vendo os jogos e entre um jogo e outro, jogava xadrez com meu irmão. O Jô Soares apresentava seu programa direto da Austrália. Sydney ainda não terminou pra mim...

E, logo em 2001, mergulhei nas olimpíadas de Atenas.

Tudo começou com uma notinha que saiu na folha e que guardo de recordação até hoje:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Me inscrevi para ser voluntário. E foi aí que começou um longo processo de seleção em inúmeras etapas. Testes de inglês, de conhecimentos gerais, formulários que não acabavam mais, entrevistas no consulado grego, testes e mais testes. Hoje tenho uma pasta com todo o processo, as cartas e os certificados:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Depois de quase 3 anos de processo, fui um dos 500 escolhidos do Brasil para ser voluntário nas olimpíadas. Porém, tinha um problema: precisava pagar passagem, hospedagem durante 2 meses e o terceiro mês iria ficar na Vila Olímpica varrendo o chão. Iria ganhar curso de grego e inglês. E nessa época tinha acabado de entrar na Lowe, uma agência de publicidade. Misteriosamente acabei declinando o convite e seguindo na Lowe. Até hoje não sei se fiz a coisa certa. Olímpiadas é inesquecível assim como foi ter trabalhado lá em uma época ótima.

E eis que cá estamos em Pequim. Ainda não criei vínculos com os jogos. Ainda não me pegou de jeito. Mas estou curioso para saber como que eu lembrarei dessa olimpíada lá em 2012, em Londres.

E agora vou dormir que já já começa e não posso perder a abertura!

¹ Olimpíada: originalmente a palavra "olimpíada" seria o período entre os jogos olímpicos, no caso, de 4 anos. Mas como tudo se deturpa, os jogos olímpicos viraram "Olimpíadas".

² Pequim: O certo seria escrever Beijing e falar "pequim". Pequim escrito é errado, mas "o povo prefere".
