A RESTAURANT manager is among four colleagues who will serve customers and athletes in the capital during the London Olympic Games.

Brad Mousley, shift manager at McDonald’s in Regent Street, Weston, has been selected from more than 87,000 staff working for the fast food chain to be part of its official Olympic Champion Crew.

As well as working at the games, they will also have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of London 2012, see at least one Olympic or Paralympic event, go to cultural events and socialise with fellow McDonald’s crew members from across the UK and the world.

Brad, aged 18, said: “I feel so lucky to have been selected out of so many people.

“Being given the chance to work at the games will be the biggest recognition of my hard work yet and it’s a great feeling knowing how proud my family is of my achievement.

“I think the most challenging thing will be keeping up with the volume of customers, but I am really excited to be working in the busiest McDonald’s restaurants in the country and meeting lots of new people.”

The crew will travel to London this summer to work across the four temporary McDonald’s restaurants in and around the Olympic park.
