Biographies & Profiles 29/03/2011

Andrea Silvestri, HUN

A significant number (50+) of athletes competing in Marseille have returned the questionnaires sent out by Heidi Goetz. Unfortunately, most of them at a very late stage - only days prior to the Championship.

We have posted as many as we could - under PROFILE - and will continue to do so over the coming weeks. At the same time, we have our webmaster working on an online form that can be filled in by the athletes themselves ... even from the site of a competition. This will require an assigned password for them to access the backend of their microsite, and to fill in BIOGRAPHY and PROFILE there.

The idea is to allow every athlete in the IDSF RLS to access and update his or her profiles regularly, and to use these microsites much like their facebook.

Andrea Silvestri and Martina Váradi, HUN, serve as examples here. They did return the questionnaire, IDSF Communications posted it, and through the pictures our camera crew in Marseille was able to identify and interview them. Here are their listings. Andrea Slivestri and Martina Váradi!

Here is the video!
