    Who do you think should light the Olympic flame at London 2012?

    It's fast approaching- which person do you feel most befitting of lighting the olympic flame for London 2012? Who do you feel most matches the olympic ethos or do you feel would help enhance the London Olympiad?

    Gagan narang or Abhinav Bhinav Bhindra as they are the masters of Archery now a days. They are young and can achieve much if properly recognized now. It helps them to keep progressing

    Someone that isn't famous with an incurable illness.  They should get paid for it too.  Treatments can be very expensive.

    Nigel Mansell. For so many years, he tried unsuccessfully to win the F1 World Championship. He was plagued by a combination of both bad luck and bad teams.

    In 1992, he finally achieved his goal and promptly left F1, perhaps fulfilled and then won the 1993 Indycar World Championship with Newman-Hass.

    The Olympics is about perserverance and triumph over long odds. He did exactly that and deserves to light the lame, even if it was in a non-olympic sport.
