GREAT BRITAIN’s number one women’s javelin thrower Goldie Sayers will be carrying the Olympic torch through Bourne on Wednesday.

The UK record holder and British champion for the past 10 years is already a double Olympian, competing in Athens in 2004 and coming fourth in Beijing in 2008.

Goldie, 29, who is based in London, is aiming for gold at her home games.

The Olympic torch will enter the town at 8.53am where it will be carried along South Road.

From there, it moves into South Street before being carried along Abbey Road and then Spalding Road before leaving Bourne at 9.17am.

On the weekend Goldie, who was born in Newmarket in Cambridgeshire, represented Great Britain at the 2012 European Athletic Championship where she came fourth and she has been tipped to medal at the games by javelin legend Steve Backley.

As well as being one of Britain’s medal favourites at London 2012, Goldie is also a director of the British Athletes’ Commission and a member of the British Olympic Authority Athletes’ Commission.
