Olympic Torch Revealed
The 2012 Olympic torch - that will be carried around the UK by 8000 runners - has been unveiled.
The flame will burn from a curved triangular aluminium tube which has 8000 holes in it, representing each of the runners who will carry it on its tour of Britain between May and July 2012.
It was unveiled by Olympic organiser Lord Coe and Olympic heptathlete Denise Lewis at London's St Pancras International rail station on Wednesday 8 June 2010.
The torch is due to stop in Luton on Sunday 8 July 2012 for an overnight stay, after it has been to Cambridge and before it heads to Oxford. The exact route it will take between these overnight stops has yet to be revealed though, and places like Milton Keynes, Bedford and Northamptonshire are all campaigning to get the flame to pass through their area on either Saturday 7, Sunday 8 or Monday 9 July 2012.
Some people have likened the torch to a cheesegrater. What do you think?
