You may have already heard the news last month that talented Singer, Actor and Presenter Lee Seung Gi is confirmed to be a Olympic Torch Bearer for the relay that will mark the opening of the 2012 London Olympics. Chosen by Samsung (a Korean Company did you know?) Lee Seung Gi will be one of the 8000 people who will be carrying the Olympic torch during it’s journey all around the UK.
As of yet, it has not been confirmed which part of the route Lee Seung Gi will be participating in. The relay starts on 27th May at Lands End and will journey all around the UK for 70 days, where it is expected to come within 10 miles of 95% of people in the UK, Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey. The torch will arrive in London on 21st July and will tour all around London and making it’s final stop in Central London on the 26th London where there will be a MASSIVE celebration in preparation for the Olympic which starts the next day (27 July). *Fingers crossed* Lee Seung Gi gets a part of the route that’s in London for maximum exposure and because we are based here… Sorry non Londoners! :P
