Year 7 Rokeby pupil, Freddie Laflin , very kindly showed fellow pupils the Winter Olympics torch today. Freddie’s father was lucky enough to run with the torch in Krasnodar last Tuesday which was the last city it visited before moving to Sochi and for the Opening Ceremony. Rokeby boys were very excited to hold the Olympic torch.

The torch has been carried by a record number of 14,000 torchbearers across 56,000 km covering all 83 regions of Russia taking 123 days since October of last year.

Mr Laflin was invited by the Sochi organising committee who he has been working very closely with for the last 10 years since they bid for the Games.
