Getting in the Olympic Spirit? Now you can take part in the Hope Relay.
15th May 2012
Celebrating the start of the Olympic Torch Relay and in co-ordination with our Back to School programme we took a team up to Leeds Metropolitan Uni to interview some of their selected Olympic Torch Bearers.
Over 70 days, the Olympic Flame will journey across the UK, starting at Land's End and finishing at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London. The story of the Olympic Flame goes back to ancient Greece where the Olympic Games first began. Originally, the Flame was lit as a tribute to the goddess of Hera and was kept alit for the duration of the games, a tradition still maintained today. To honour this proud history, the Flame is still lit in Greece using concentrated natural light and a parabolic mirror. It then travels from the original site of the temple of Hera to the next Olympic host city by official Torchbearers.
Our team met with Leeds Met's selected Olympic Relay Runners ,Yasser Ranjha the Students' Union President and Lewis Wildridge the Athletic Union President.
