London Riots: British Youth Embrace Olympic Torch Rally

by | 9th, August 2011

LONDON’S Youth have embraced the Olympics spirit for 2012 by doing anything to get their hands on tracksuits and training shoes. Desperate to keen abreast of the latest news from the table-tennis arena, the sports mad boys and girls are out jogging, on the look out for TVs, radios, mobile devices and gadgets so they never miss a moment of the action.

The Olympics torch relay is already well underway, starting in Tottenham, and taking in Enfield, Ealing, Croydon, Brixton, Woolwich and Hackney. Even youth in Toxteth and Birmingham have embraced the spirit of a cheaper, freer, Olympic Games, going for gold – literally! – at the jewellers and pawn brokers.

Says one Olympic committee member:

“If the Northern Irish can muck in, Team GB will be up there with the best France has to offer.”
