Olympic torch relay nominations close tonight

THE deadline for nominating inspirational people in South Cumbria to carry the Olympic torch next summer in at midnight tonight, Wednesday.

For the last six weeks, the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games has accepted nominations for people to carry the torch in the relay around Great Britain and Ireland.

But with just hours to go until the nomination process closes, Active Cumbria is urging people to ensure truly inspirational people in the area are not missed out.

The sports partnership body has nominated 15 individuals who they would like to see carry the torch through Cumbria.

Only one nomination per person will be considered and 50 per cent of torchbearers will be aged 12-24.
