The London 2012 Olympic Torch comes to the Isle of Wight on Saturday (14th July).
Islanders will catch their first glimpse of the flame in Totland, where it will arrive at ten past one on Saturday afternoon.
It will then be driven in convoy to the Needles Park, before being carried by torchbearers in Yarmouth from around quarter past two.
Sophie Wade-Smith, 20, from Sandown, will be one of the first Islanders to carry the torch.
She’s one of 8000 inspirational people chosen by organisers who will run with the flame on its 70 day journey around the country, which will end in the Olympic Stadium at the Opening Ceremony on July 27th.
‘I cannot express how much of an honour it is, she told Isle of Wight Radio.
‘To have my family come along and see me is an absolute privilege and fingers crossed I can do everyone proud.
‘Hopefully everyone’s looking forward it. There’ll be a real buzz around the day – really exciting’.
Saturday will be the 57th day of the relay. It’s travelled by boat, steam train, cable-car and even jet-pack so far, and has travelled to the top of Mount Snowdon, the Blackpool Tower ballroom and the Giant’s Causeway.
The torch has also been held by some famous torchbearers, including Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Bobby Charlton and Sir Chris Hoy, a triple gold medal-winner at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Fifteen Islanders have been selected to carry the torch on Saturday, many of them being rewarded for their charity or community work.
Sophie has raised almost £6000 for charity, and has recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for Cash for Kids.
She’s looking forward to her moment in the spotlight.
‘There’ll be lots of things going through my mind – don’t trip over, don’t drop it, don’t let the flame go out!
‘I’ll have the crowd’s support and everyone will be with me. Fingers crossed it doesn’t go wrong!’, she laughed.
Islanders will have plenty of opportunities to see the torch on Saturday. As well as Yarmouth Totland and the Needles Park, it will visit Carisbrooke, Newport and East Cowes.
