The Olympic Torch Relay is now in the 33rd day of its tour around the United Kingdom. Since my last torch relay post the iconic flame has travelled from Ireland, toured Scotland and travelled through the North East of England to York, where the reply began today.

During the last week or so of the Olympic Tour Relay have been somewhat overshadowed by other sporting events. England are playing in the Euro 2012 football tournament which has dominated most sporting headlines so you might be unaware that the Olympic Torch has abseiled down The Saga Music Centre in Gateshead, ridden on a steam train in York, prompted a marriage proposal in Middlesbrough and helped recreates a scene from one of Scotland most iconic film, ‘Chariots of Fire’ in St Andrews.

The Torch truly is making a huge impact on the people of Great Britain and touring the country in the most spectacular style. I can’t wait to see what else the Olympic Torch Relay organisers have in store as it makes its way through Lancashire and the Midlands before it heads to the south of England.
