Games volunteer worker dazzles with flamboyant dance – Sporting Life
It’s not every day you’ve got the world’s cameras focused on you and this Commonwealth Games volunteer certainly took the opportunity by the horns.
Instead of sweeping sand for the next volleyball match, Dan Rae, originally from Cumbria but living in London, gyrated around his rake, ‘stealing the show’ in the process.
The Commonwealth Games even posted about his funky moves at the stadium in Birmingham.
The official Commonwealth Games TikTok account posted: ‘When they’re a ten but steal the show. 11/10 would employ again.’
Officials for the Games added: ‘The moves are undeniable… it’s his world, we’re just living in it.’
While the dancer wowed the crowd with his dance in a pair of crocs, his colleagues seemed to ignore him and carry on with their job.
Social media users were quick to watch the video, which has racked up hundreds of thousands of views in a single day.
One suggested he should receive a ‘pay rise’ while another wondered whether he was brought in as some ‘halftime entertainment or something’.
