If you’ve been travelling on the London underground recently you may have noticed the huge posters naming people who have been nominated to carry the Olympic torch for a portion of its journey to London. The posters also ask people to nominate someone they think should be put forward to have the honour of being torch bearer. Being nominated and winning would be my worst nightmare.
Far from the pride of the nation I would be the shame of the nation: I was a serial skiver from P.E. at school, I would humiliate myself and get a side stitch after running two metres and I would have to run in high heels as I don’t even own a pair of trainers. In fact I haven’t owned a pair of trainers for at least ten years.
Pass it on…immediately!
