Share the journey: Lloyds TSB is searching for ‘sporty’ people

to carry the London 2012 Olympic Flame

  • Lloyds TSB is giving hundreds of sports people who have made a difference in the BMX world the chance to carry the Olympic Flame in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay


LONDON, 23rd August, 2011: Lloyds TSB, National Presenting Partner of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, today urges the nation to recognise people in the BMX community by nominating them to carry the Olympic Flame before the 12 September 2011 deadline.


The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay will be a 70-day celebration, starting at Land’s End on 19 May 2012, travelling thousands of miles and bringing the spirit and inspiration of the London 2012 Games to hundreds of communities across the UK. Lloyds TSB is inviting the public and customers to nominate somebody who’s made a difference in their local community and inspired others for the once in a lifetime opportunity to be a London 2012 Olympic Torchbearer.  Lloyds TSB is also encouraging people to share their nominations to inspire others to make a nomination of their own.


Torchbearers can be nominated for making a difference through several different routes, but Lloyds is particularly keen to encourage the BMX community to consider the people who’ve made a difference to their specific sport.


For example, the BMX coach who’s out in all weathers helping you to perform at your best, the team captain who always ensures the club is represented in major competitions, the committee members who are committed to developing the club and the players who always bring refreshments for the squad are all people within the BMX community who deserve the chance to carry the Olympic flame.


Ayesha Mclelland from Hampshire has nominated Nicola Spiers because “Nicola Spiers has been racing BMX for the last 27 years and in the last 3 years she has helped my get to races and helped me get to training and make my dream to get to the Olympics in 2016 that little bit easy and less stressful. She also helps out in the local BMX club where I live and encourages children to ride and even race BMX, she is always the first person to offer to help I any situation or problem and even gives up her spare time to teach children in the community to learn to ride a bike”.


There are unsung heroes like Nicola Spiers within the BMX community who deserve the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to carry the London 2012 Olympic Flame. Make sure you nominate them before 12 September to give them that chance. Nominations can be made online via
