THE Olympics is well and truly underway.

And Milton Keynes Citizen has enlisted the help of MK resident Kirstin McIntosh to give us an insight into the Olympic experience.

Kirstin is volunteering as a National Olympic Committee Assistant at the Olympic Rowing and Canoe Sprint Village, and has agreed to share her experiences with readers of the Citizen website.
