What an exciting day for Olympic Torchbearer hopefuls as anyone who has applied to carry the iconic Olympic torch during the 2012 torch relay will find out their fate this morning.

Over 8000 torchbearers will be selected to participate in the torch relay, which has become an Olympic tradition in the run up to the games. The relay starting on 19th May 2012 will run the entire length of the country, covering an estimated 1018 villages, town and cities nationwide before arriving in London on 27th July for the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

Those lucky enough to carry the torch have been carefully selected as individuals who have inspirational stories and have made brilliant contributions to sport in their local community or Great Britain.

Upon the arrival of today’s news a select few torchbearers will be revealed to the public with Lord Sebastian Coe, Chair of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games. It is undoubtedly a wonderful achievement to become an Olympic Torchbearer so I would like to say a big well done to all of those who have today become successful torchbearers.
