Olympic torch relay in Edinburgh
Written by Melanie Giraud
I'm Mélanie, a French student from Angoulême, I'm in Edinburgh for a couple of months for my studies, I have to do a work placement in a company and I chose Tribalogic Ltd. I'm working on Bookster Self Catering and Caravan Parkfinder AU.
Yesterday, for the 26th day of the torch procession and the latest in Scotland, the Olympic torch was in the capital and I since I'm here I took the opportunity of my presence to see this important event. The city had taken the Olympics Games colours. It was really spectacular and a lot of people came to assist to the flame relay.
There were 115 torchbearers to carry the torch in popular place like Forth Bridge and the Wallace Monument and to finish the Edinburgh leg, Lesley Forrest carried the Olympic flame from the Mount to the Castle.
