Strong sported. Presence Amongst Olympic Torch Relay Nominations
04 Nov 2011
sported. has in total over 30 individual nominations which have
been put through to the next round for the Olympic Torch
We have nominations through to the next round in the following
regions - London, South East, South West, West Midlands and in
Yorkshire and the Humber. There are a mixture of sported. Members,
volunteer Mentors, young people and Regional Managers.
The nomination will now be reviewed by one of the 12 regional
selection panels. They will be looking for 2,012 individuals with
the most inspirational stories of personal achievement and/or
contribution to the local community. If successful, they will be
offered a place as one of the 8,000 Torchbearers needed in total
for the Olympic Torch Relay, joining those chosen through the
Presenting Partners' public nomination campaigns.
The response has been incredible and meant that close to 28,000
nominations are being put through to the selection panel stage.
Each nominee will therefore have around a one in 14 chance of being
invited to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Olympic Torchbearers will be announced week beginning 5 December
