Carrying the torch

The organisers of the 2012 London Olympics are looking for 8,000 truly inspirational people from the UK to carry the Olympic Flame on its nationwide tour.

They are seeking nominations from the public on behalf of individuals whose personal stories will inspire the millions of people watching the Olympic Torch Relay – in their community, across the UK and around the world.

They have no particular individuals in mind, simply those ordinary people who have inspired, motivated or battled against the odds and who deserve their chance to shine.

If you know of someone that you think fits the bill – it could even be yourself – you can nominate them here
