Sports facts

The Olympic torch and it’s journey

The Olympic torch on route to its host city has travelled in many ways, it is usually carried by runners, I have even carried one! It has also travelled on boats, airplanes (including the now obsolete Concorde), on horseback, on the back of a camel, via radio signal, underwater, in a canoe, it has also been into space!

Down to the wire

The expression ‘Down to the wire’ came from horse racing and is used in a close finish. Horse races would have a length of wire stretched across a racetrack at the finish line to help determine the winner.

Favourites don’t always win!

In horse racing, the favourite wins fewer than 30% of the time!
