RKJ Carrying the Olympic Torch



After being greeted by crowds all over Britain, the Olympic flame started its first full day in London today at the Prime Meridian in Greenwich. Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo non-stop around the world, ran the torch around the Cutty Sark to delighted cheers from the crowds.

Makes me proud to be British.

I think I'll have a little weep now.

Hurrah for London, R-KJ and St. George!!

I'm hoping to see the Olympic torch not once but twice next week. Golly, this Olympic thing is rather soon now.

Right JP. I hope Buff is going to be writing lots of reports about the Olympics on your blog.

He sure is. First ever to sail non-stop solo around the world! It's hard to think of any other sporting achievement in my lifetime that compares with that.

And English too...
