The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) has confirmed plans for the Olympic Flame’s final journey down the River Thames, and revealed a selection of highlights for its seven-day journey around London.
The Olympic Flame will arrive in London on the 21st July (NZ time).
The final leg of its journey will see it travel around 200 miles around the capital, carried by 982 Torchbearers.
Having visited over 1,000 communities around the UK and celebrated the achievements of over 7,000 Torchbearers to date, the Olympic Torch Relay – presented by Coca-Cola, Lloyds TSB and Samsung – will see the Flame carried by 982 Torchbearers around 200 miles of the capital’s streets, on the final leg of its journey.
The final day of the Relay will see 18 Torchbearers carry the Flame, seven of whom will travel with it down the River Thames on Gloriana, the royal barge.
