With fewer than 100 days to the launch of the Olympic Games we can begin to ask: "Who should light the Olympic flame?"
Some of the great and the good of sport have had this honour bestowed upon them over the years. Helsinki, in 1952, was the first to select a well-known athlete to light the cauldron - nine-time Olympic champion Paavo Nurmi.
Muhammad Ali in Atlanta, 44 years later, continued the tradition of famous Olympians bearing the torch on its final leg.
And who can forget the way Chinese gymnast Li Ning - the winner of six Olympic medals - 'ran' the torch to the top of the stadium in Beijing?
This Olympic Games we would like to suggest Derek Redmond and his father Jim Redmond. Jim Redmond famously helped his son Derek to complete the race at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics after he had snapped a hamstring, click here to view video.
