I'd like to nominate my friend Kirsteen Torrance. As a full-time active schools co-ordinator Kirsteen spends her days encouraging children in Scotland to participate in and enjoy sports and activities, a role which she passionately believes in. In addition to her dediction to her vocation Kirsteen extends that zeal for sports to her personal life. For the past 20 years, since her early teens, Kirsteen has been giving up her Saturdays to coach the gymnastics club in her local village in the Borders. Despite moving to Glasgow for her career, which is over an hour's drive away, she still returns every weekend to the village to continue her commitment to the club. And when she isn't encouraging children to take part in sport themselves she's leading by example - whether it is training to participate in triathlons, running marathons or by going windsurfing with her friends. As someone who is bubbling over with excitement about the Olympics coming to the UK, Kirsteen would be an ideal representative to carry the flame on part of its journey. And seeing her do it would give further encouragement to a generation of children whom she's striving hard to motivate and enthuse, showing them that by being someone dedicated and determined you can participate in something so special. I know that Kirsteen will have a large and very vocal group of supporters if she is chosen to be one of the torch-bearers, because there are a lot of people who'd love to cheer her on that journey.
