    The first people a visitor to the Olympic Park would encounter, once you have passed through security, are the bus drivers. Every site or office staff working on the park relies on the team of thirty bus drivers to ferry them to their place of work, and without them nothing could function. Sam [Semra Yusuf] is a Turkish Cypriot woman, resident in Newham, funded by the Olympic Apprentice Scheme to get her bus licence, and also a passionate long distance swimmer. On 12 August 2011 Sam swam the length of the bus route she normally drives, in the newly completed Olympic pool – a distance of 1,270 metres.
    This is an excerpt from the resulting film documenting that Olympic swim, as well as her daily routine, her work, colleagues and the building of the pool itself. It is an insight into the workings of the park from the perspective of one individual.
