Olympic Torch travels through Treherbert

Sports Treherbert, Great Britain - 26 May 2012

The Olympic torch, which symbolizes peace, unity and friendship, traveled through Treherbert, a small village in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales on May 26, 2012. Local residents came out to show their support. 

The 70-day Olympic Torch Relay began on May 18. According to the official website for the London 2012 Olympics, over 8,000 torchbearers will carry the flame through more than 1,000 cities, towns and villages in the UK. The torchbearers for Treherbert were Holly Morris, Bronte Bowen, Danielle Russell and Gwyn Lein. 

The flame was lit in Greece, the birthplace of the Olympic games, and traveled around the country before being handed over to the UK, in a traditional ceremony at the Panatheneiko Stadium in Athens.

The torch will finish its journey in London, where it will be used to light the Cauldron at the Opening Ceremony in the Olympic Stadium on July 27. The flame will remain lit until the games' closing ceremony on August 12.
