the keshvani press employment

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

Nisar Keshvani worked as a journalist for the Olympic News Service, the official news provider for the Sydney 2000 Olympics, throughout the Games period (16 September - 1 October 2000).

Nisar was based at the State Hockey Centre where his professionalism and ability to write to tight deadlines made him an invaluable member of the reporting team.


During his time at Homebush Bay Nisar wrote regular reviews of Olympic hockey matches, interviewed leading playery - sometimes through an interpreter - and attended press conferences. His reports appeared on the official (and highly acclaimed) Games information service, INFO, where they were picked up by the national and international media and subsequently used in Olympic news coverage worldwide.

Challenges in sports journalism don't come any bigger than the Olympics. Nisar proved himself equal to them, consistently providing fast and accurate copy written in the clear, concise style required by ONS. He got on well with the rest of the team and was a pleasure to work with.

I would not hesitate in recommending Nisar to you and wish him every success in his future career.

Yours truly

Ingrid Morris
Olympic News Service Supervisor
