iomart Group plc employee Colin McGregor has described the day he ran as a Torchbearer in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay as “a day I’ll remember for the rest of my life.”
Colin, aged 30, who is customer services manager for iomart’s Easyspace web hosting brand, was chosen to carry the Olympic Flame because of his work as a volunteer leader with the Scouts Association in Scotland.
He ran through Newburgh in Fife on Tuesday 12 June 2012 where friends, family and hundreds of local people lined the streets to cheer him on.
Colin, said, “It really was like being the biggest celebrity in the world. Hundreds of people were there, calling out my name and cheering. It’s a day I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I’d just like to say thanks to everyone who’s supported me over the last few days. I’ll never forget it.”
iomart Group plc was given the opportunity by Lloyds TSB/Bank of Scotland, National Presenting Partner of the London 2012 Relay, to nominate a member of staff. Colin was nominated by Director of Internal Services Susan Laughlin.
