Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
You must know by now how I feel about The Olympics. I have severe Olympic fever already and so when I saw the torch relay was coming quite close to us, I immediately decided to walk to Prior Road to see it. The atmosphere was fantastic - the road was lined two or three deep as far as the eye could see. People were cheering anything that went past: sponsors buses, policemen on bikes and motorbikes, relay staff jogging, waving flags or unicycling…
Here is the next but last torch bearer of Day 68, who was going to jog up to Alexander Palace and hand the Olympic flame over to Daley Thompson.
The torchbearer is Bill O'Connor - a teacher and a marathon runner who has inspired generations of children achieve their goals through sport.
