SARATOV, January 11, 11:31 /ITAR-TASS/. Saratov has welcomed the Olympic torch relay. An ensemble of local accordion players met the special train, which delivered the torch from Penza.
Despite the drizzle in the city, hundreds of people came to the railway station to greet the torch relay.
“The warmth of our hearts will add to the energy of the Olympic flame,” head of the local government Mikhail Goremyko said. “We believe in victories of Russian athletes.”
The relay participants will cover a distance of 50 kilometres. In the evening, Governor Valery Radayev and a European champion in rowing Natalia Lobova will light the Olympic flame cup in the central Theatre Square.
The Olympic torch relay will finish on February 7, at the Fisht stadium in Sochi. The name of the athlete, who will be the final carrier of the torch and who will lit the cup of the Games, is kept secret as yet.
