Charles Sturt University students will see the glory and the pain of Sydney 2000 Olympics Games first hand when they join the vast army of volunteers at the event.

Six physiotherapy students from the University's School of Community Health, based in Albury-Wodonga, will be among the volunteers providing medical attention to athletes competing in the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

First, second and third year students Juanita Morgan, Carole Bowman, Angela Favaloro, Felicity Middleton, Simon Letjes and Michael Brown are all excited in participating.

"I can't wait to get there," said second year student, Michael. "This is an opportunity to be part of the greatest sporting event on earth as well as practice what I have learnt in my course."

The jobs range from assisting in the equestrian events in the Olympic and Paralympic Games to driving an ambulance at the tennis and working the evening shift at the Olympic village to massage away the aches and pains of competitors.
