May 19, 2012
It will be the three-time Olympic medalist in sailing, Ben Ainslie (Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008), that will be the first one to carry the Olympic torch on British grounds. The athlete will start in the last 70 days of the relay, which started its journey on May 10th from the Greek town of Olympia, and will end on July 27th at the London Olympic Stadium, when the 2012 Olympics will be officially unveiled. At the end of its journey, the Olympic torch will have passed through the hands of more than 8,000 torchbearers, including Maurizio Stroppiana (President and CEO of Mondo Spa) and Stefania Stroppiana (Marketing Manager of Mondo Spa).
