Hundreds lined the streets of Camelon to welcome the Olympic Flame as it passed through the town on its tour of Great Britain.
The Torch was greeted by cheering crowds as it arrived from Larbert, a bit behind schedule, at about 12.45pm on Wednesday, June 13.
Among the spectators were Gill Urquhart and Niamh Nicdaeid. Gill and Niamh had been talking about the Olympic Flame and its symbolism when s1camelon spoke to them.
Niamh said: “I think there should be one physical Torch that is passed around the country. Obviously they would have a stand-by flame in case it goes out. It would be more symbolic.
“It’s fantastic to see so many people turn out for it. And it’s nice that it’s here in Scotland because it gets us more involved in the whole Olympics.”
Gill added: “I think Niamh’s idea of one Torch is impractical but I do think with all the Torches out there that people can buy and sell, the Olympics is becoming more commercial. But for the children that are here it’s a fantastic day and something that they will never see again in their life.
"We’ve got tickets for Hampden for the women’s football and we’re quite excited about that.”
Also waiting to watch the Flame was Kirstie Hughes, who had come along with her kids Xander and Charlotte. Kirstie said: “We’re looking forward to it and seeing it later on the telly at the big stadium.”
