(Vocus) October 7, 2010
With India into its first week of hosting the prestigious sporting event that is the Commonwealth Games 2010, the country and its people have much to celebrate and be enthusiastic about. Bringing economic vibrancy, social vivacity and cultural exuberance to the streets of Delhi, the people now have a sense of Commonwealth spirit within them and it is WinkBall.com, the UK’s number one video website who have captured their passion for the games so far via the emotional power of online video.
Extending their network of reporters further worldwide, a team of local Indian citizens have been trained and recruited as citizen video reporters by WinkBall. Reporting at the heart of the Commonwealth action, WinkBall reporters will be speaking to locals in Delhi and finding out what the man on the street really thinks about the Commonwealth Games coming to India this year.
Through WinkBall’s exciting online video coverage of the games, fans will be treated to a fresh new insight into the Commonwealth Games and will see a different and stirring story of the event, one from the viewpoint of Delhi’s people. Spectators and local citizens will see themselves and others telling WinkBall what the Commonwealth Games really mean to them and how they have enjoyed the games so far. With a great deal of negative attention surrounding the event so far from traditional media outlets, WinkBall have shown the Commonwealth Games as what they should be truly appreciated and valued for; a grandiose sporting event that is enjoyed by all involved. Hundreds of local citizens so far have communicated happiness about Commonwealth Delhi 2010 and tapped into the real spirit of the games.
WinkBall has provided an innovative online platform for people to have their say and express their passion and pride for this year’s Commonwealth Games. With London 2012 only a few years away now, the UK will also be given a window of opinion of which to model the Olympics on in two years time as people will also be giving their thoughts on what lessons the UK can take from India in hosting a major sporting event. London, take notice!
