LONDON 2012: World champion swimmer to be first Olympic torchbearer


SPYROS Gianniotis, a Greek swimmer born in Liverpool, will be the first to carry the London 2012 Olympic flame.

Gianniotis, who won open water swimming gold at last year's World Championship in Shanghai, will be the first of 500 torchbearers who will take the flame on its eight-day 3,000km journey from the Temple of Hera in Olympia to the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, the site of the first modern Olympics in 1896.

It will then be handed over to a London 2012 representative, who will take it on a specially chartered gold plane to commence the 70-day relay around the UK one day later.
