This torch is as yet unlit as you can see. The runner was on his way with the flamed one to light this one up and continue the journey via White Rock and across the U.S. border slightly then on to Richmond then into Vancouver. This was the first time in history the Olympic flame has been carried into another country.
One of my daughters went to the ceremony at Holland park, near her home. She said there was about 30 thousand people there to see it and the lighting of the cauldren.
The excitement is starting!
