Activ8 Young Leaders to carry Olympic Torch

Olympic fever is burning bright for five young women in Northern Ireland as they get set to carry the Olympic Torch.
 
Ahead of the London 2012 Games, a squad of young Olympic Advocates, who are part of Sport Northern Ireland’s Activ8 Young Leaders programme, have now developed a range of leadership skills through sport.
In return for their hard work and dedication, five of the enthusiastic Young Leaders are being given a moment to shine after they were nominated to carry the iconic Olympic flame.
The Activ8 Young Leaders are using their leadership skills to motivate friends and teachers to get fit and healthy ahead of the Games, including devising a unique ‘buddy scheme’ where less confident pupils and teachers are accompanied to the gym by the Young Leaders.
