More than 500 school children took part in the events Welsh Athletics organised across Wales to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay.
Aided by the local Welsh Athletics Development Officers and local clubs, Welsh Athletics set up special "5 Event Challenge" areas at the main Torch Relay events in Swansea on Saturday 26th, Aberystwyth on Sunday 27th and Bangor on Monday 28th May, and besides the Torch route in Caerphilly and Torfaen on Saturday 26th.
The events also saw the participation of some of the most prominent Welsh Athletics stars and young emerging talents. Middle distance runner Steve Davies accompanied hundreds of kids on a mini-torch run in Swansea, while Alex Hains and Adam Bitchell - himself a local from Aberystwyth - were welcoming all school children on Sunday. Olympic hopeful Gareth Warburton and young GB international Owen Smith handed out autographed cards and posed for pictures at the Faenol estate in Bangor.
All participating children got a taste of athletics, taking part in events featuring the three basic motoric skills of running, jumping and throwing - some results were truly exceptional, with several participants achieving gold, silver and bronze awards.
For those wishing to get a more enduring involvement in our sport, representatives from the local clubs were at hand to move our country one step closer to the target of getting every kid hooked on sport for life.
Pictures from the three days are available on our London 2012 Torch Relay Gallery.
