FOUR-time Olympic cycling champion Sir Chris Hoy is urging Carisbrooke residents to take to the streets on July 14 to cheer on blind Olympic torchbearer Colin McArthur.
Colin, 60, will be running through Carisbrooke carrying the flame on its way to the opening ceremony of the London 2012 games, on July 27.
He was chosen as the Lloyds TSB torchbearer because of his tireless fundraising work to help repair and restore people’s sight.
Sir Chris, who is Lloyds TSB ambassador, said: "The 2012 torch relay is going to be a huge event — the Olympic Games are not just about London, it’s about the whole country."
