A YOUNG man from Ferring got the opportunity to run with the Olympic torch on Saturday, May 19.

Harry Shiel, of Beehive Lane, Ferring, went to Plymouth on the first day of the Olympic torch’s journey around the country to have his turn in carrying it.

Harry is one of four people in the UK to be selected as a Samsung Global Blogger (SGB), after pipping hundreds of others in a competition last year.

As an SGB, Harry is granted access to his choice of Olympic events, and will take photos and video on a Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone, to produce multi-media sports articles for the Samsung website.
