Lethbridge One Of 200 Canadian Cities Selected As A Celebration City To The 2010 Winter Olympics Torch Run

Lethbridge, Alberta - Residents of Lethbridge anxious to catch the Olympic Spirit will have the opportunity to see the Olympic Flame in person as it passes through Lethbridge on its way towards the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The 2010 Olympic Torch Relay, presented by Coca-Cola and RBC, will reach over 90 per cent of Canadians within a one-hour drive. The torch relay route is available at vancouver2010.com and information on how residents can apply to be torchbearers can be found at icoke.ca and rbc.com/carrythetorch.

“I am proud to announce that Lethbridge has been selected as a celebration city for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games Torch Relay. This means residents can experience the Olympic Spirit first hand by participating in the torch relay, and the city will be one of 200 communities in Canada where a special celebration will be held in support of the event,” says Mayor Robert Tarleck. “People in Lethbridge live in a healthy community and are actively in involved in sports and recreation of all kinds. The torch relay will attract participants of all ages, and I see this as a unique opportunity for Lethbridge residents to get involved in creating a first rate festival as part of a Canada-wide celebration.”

Residents interested in applying for an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to carry the Olympic Flame can apply at iCoke.ca or rbc.com/carrythetorch. Coca-Cola and RBC, the relay’s presenting partners, have the exclusive rights for the public to enter the Olympic Torchbearer program and are looking for Canadian applicants who commit to live healthier or are inspired to create a stronger country by volunteering or making sustainable choices. There will be several opportunities to apply for torchbearer spots beginning on November 21, 2008.

The 2010 Olympic Torch Relay will begin its 106-day Canadian journey on October 30, 2009. The Flame’s pan-Canadian journey will culminate on February 12, 2010 when it arrives in Vancouver for the Opening Ceremony before a global viewing audience of billions.

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay route will be the longest domestic Torch Relay in Olympic history, stretching over 45,000 kilometres throughout Canada. Upon its conclusion, the Olympic Flame will have been welcomed in over 1,000 communities and passed within a one-hour of more than 90 per cent of the entire Canadian population.

The Government of Canada is a proud supporter of the Olympic Torch Relay helping to bring the Olympic Flame to as many Canadians as possible.
