KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 9 (Bernama) -- "It is like a dream come true," said the 32-year old Hungarian woman who had travelled with FIFA World Cup Trophy tours to 32 countries, when it made its stopover in Malaysia recently.
Annamaria Gazda, who works for the Coca-Cola Company as a Global Asset Manager in Atlanta, United States, for almost seven years could not imagine how she felt when first asked to join the tours.
"This is a once in a lifetime experience, only few people have a chance to be here... to be a representative for the company (Coca-Cola) and the World Cup trophy. Travel with the trophy around the world.. I am glad, I am the chosen one.
"I feel like I am a small ambassador.. It is not only once in a lifetime opportunity but it was like dream come true for me to be involved in such an amazing project," she told Bernama in an exclusive interview during her tour to Malaysia from Jan 3 to 5.
Gazda said in total there were 90 stopovers (countries) but her tour involved only 50 of them. The trophy arrived in Malaysia from Vietnam thereafter made its way to Jakarta. Malaysia was the 56th stopover.....
