Rache and I were in City Park last weekend to see the Olympic flame passing through and although I had a great view I was a little dissapointed to have had such a fleeting brush with Olympic history.
However a few days later I got the opportunity to meet a torch bearer and even hold the torch during a photo shoot at the University of Bradford. The torch bearer was student Saira Tabasum. She is an amateur boxer and qualified boxing coach who was also shortlisted in the the 2012 Asian Women of the Year awards. She carried the torch through Brighouse on Sunday and kindly spent some time after the shoot posing for pictures with people who wanted to have a photo taken with the torch, including me!
