Epsom student carries Olympic torch
A 15-year-old future Olympic hopeful got a taste for the Games as he carried the torch through Reigate on Friday.
Aydin Djemal, from Epsom, is studying for his GCSEs at Blenheim High School.
He hopes to represent Great Britain in the Olympics one day after winning a silver medal at this year’s Winter Youth Olympics in speed skating, breaking a 12-year record for the 1,000m distance.
After carrying the flame, Aydin, who was cheered on by crowds waving hundreds of Union Jack flags, said: "It was an incredible experience and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I was very privileged."
