One young person from each of the 20 International Inspiration countries has been selected as a Torchbearer and will carry the Flame in Nottinghamshire on 28 June.
Inspired to choose sport
The Torchbearers were selected either for their commitment to inspiring young people through the power of sport, or for the personal challenges they have overcome in their lives.
International Inspiration is bringing to life the promise made by the London 2012 bid team to reach young people all around the world and connect them to the power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport.
London 2012 Organising Committee Chair Seb Coe said: ‘I’m thrilled that young people from around the world will also get the chance to run with the Olympic Flame.
'All 20 of the International Inspiration Torchbearers have been a real inspiration in their community and demonstrate the impact sport can have on a person’s life. Their stories are truly inspirational and we look forward to welcoming them to the UK in just a few weeks time.’
