Youth Olympic Games torch relay begins
  • August 9th, 2010

Last Saturday mark day one out of six where the Youth Olympic Games flames will pass through the heartlands of Singapore.

16-year-old student Tay Shi Pei was the first torchbearer to mark the start of the relay, after receiving the flame from Education Minister Ng Eng Hen at CHIJ Secondary (Toa Payoh).

Despite the morning shower, it didn’t dampen the mood, as everyone was looking forward to the spirit of the Olympics.

Day one saw the flames passing through Marymount Road, to MacRitchie Reservoir and ended at Nanyang Polytechnic.

Some 2,400 torchbearers will take part in the 6-day island-wide relay, from August 7 to 13; with a break on August 9 due to National Day.
