Beckham's Boat At Southampton Boat Show!

Visitors to this year's Southampton Boat Show can see the speedboat which David Beckham drove down the River Thames to the Olympic opening ceremony.

The Bladerunner carried the Olympic Torch on the final part of its journey to the stadium. 

The boat was designed in Hampshire. Its main home is now in Farnham, Surrey. There are also plans to exhibit it at shows in the United States.

The Bladerunner isn't the only Olympic connection at this year's show. The event was opened by Paralympic gold medal winning sailor Helena Lucas (who's from Southampton) and Olympic gold medallist Ben Ainslie (who's from Lymington).
