The will be 32 runners taking the Olympic torch on its 13-mile route through the streets of Bristol on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.
Some 8,000 people across the UK will carry the Olympic Flame out of 37,000 people who originally applied for the role.
Bristol paralympian sailor Blaire Hannan will have the honour of taking the flame on a boat over to the Amphitheatre where it will light a cauldron for the evening’s party.
Blaire, who will be 21 on the day the flame arrives in her home city, developed a neurological and muscular condition aged 13 when she was hit on the leg with a hockey ball during a school match. Within a week she was unable to walk and was wheelchair bound. The chain reaction continued to develop and despite doctors best efforts, spread over the whole of her body over the next few years.
Despite operations and the difficulties faced, Blaire is said to be a “shoe-in” for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Meanwhile, Bristol University students Georgie Twigg, Bettina Urban and Teaching Fellow Shirley Hume will have their moment to shine on Wednesday.
Teaching Fellow Shirley Hume, 61, was chosen for being an outstanding sportswoman and dedicated member of staff in the department of accounting and finance.
Despite having undergone 16 operations for skin cancer, she has run 25 road marathons and 30 ultra-marathons (more than 100 miles), in addition to being a keen long-distance cyclist.
