Britain Waits For The Olympic Torch

The United Kingdom led by Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the Princess Royal are raring to go for the longest leg of the Olympic torch run. London organizers reveal that Prime Minister Brown will be receiving the Olympic torch when it arrives. While Princess Anne will be present on the grand finale at the Peninsula Square.

Among the chosen to carry the torch on this 31 mile run is Athens Olympics champion Kelly Holmes, 5-time Olympic gold medalist Steve Redgrave and British Pro Tennis Player Tim Henman.

The other fortunate people chosen Olympic torchbearers are a mix of British popular celebrities such as the girl band Sugababes, actress Denise van Outen, news presenter Trevor McDonald, violinist Vanessa Mae, sailor Ellen MacArthur and Arsenal footballer Theo Walcott.

The torch will pass through key places in the United Kingdom which includes Notting Hill, China Town, Trafalgar Square and the South Bank, St Paul's Cathedral and East London.

Many people all over the UK are keen to be around the torch. Quotes like "The torch will pass through key places in the United Kingdom which includes Notting Hill, China Town, Trafalgar Square and the South Bank, St Paul's Cathedral and East London" on the blog could be viewed as London centric..

If you're interested to see some footage of the Vancouver 2010 torch relay we have a full playlist of videos.

It's updated weekly and the last stop was in Quebec City.

Enjoy!

If it was anything like Vancouver, 2012 should be a great show. London should be prepared to show it's pride and patriotism.
