Terrific ten named as first wave of Olympic torchbearers

TEN of the planned 32 Hebridean Olympic flame torchbearers have been revealed ahead of the prestigious event which is claimed will see the torch come within 10 miles of 95% of people in the UK, Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey.

Kirsty Wade, Chancy Macleod, Eilidh Mackenzie, Elizabeth Macleod, Gemma Steele, Roma Macleod, Janet Smith McNaughton, Jenny McTaggart, Kayleighanne O’ Carroll and Norrie Mackenzie are the terrific ten who have so far been confirmed for the honour later this year when the flame travels through the isles.
