THE road to London was lit up by Burnley hammer thrower Sophie Hitchon as she took part in the Olympic Torch relay.

The 20-year-old, a full-time athlete at Loughborough University, was bestowed the honour of carrying the Torch on a route of the campus.

The UK women’s and World junior hammer champion, recently selected for Team GB, will now attend a training camp in Portugal, before the greatest show on earth - the Olympics, with qualifying on Wednesday, August 8th, and the final two days later.
