NOT ONLY HAS CORNWALL JUNIOR PLAYER GEORGIA HIGGS BEEN SELECTED AS ONE OF THE FIVE YOUNG SPORTS AMBASSADORS TO BRING THE OLYMPIC FLAME BACK TO CORNWALL, SHE WILL ALSO BE DOING THIS IN THE COMPANY OF DAVID BECKHAM!!
Georgia was selected from Helston College for her commitment to sport and for promoting the Olympic values of friendship, excellence and respect within the college. Georgia has been helping to organise a local primary school festival inspired by the London 2012 Games and including an opening ceremony.
Georgia said: "I have always loved participating in numerous sports, so to be given the opportunity to partake in the world’s greatest sporting event is just incredible. I'm so proud to be part of this experience and to bring the Flame back to Britain, as well as my home county of Cornwall, is utterly amazing. I know it will be something I will always remember!"
Georgia, David Beckham, and the rest of the party will head to Athens for Friday’s official handover ceremony of the Olympic flame from Greece to the UK, and bring it back to RNAS Culdrose ahead of the torch relay, which begins at Land’s End on Saturday morning.
