Tyler, the last Olympic Relay Torchbearer
The theme of the London 2012 Olympics was "Inspire a Generation". Coca Cola chose Tyler as an inspirational teenager to represent this legacy and become their final Torchbearer, the last of 8000 Relay Torchbearers to carry the Olympic Flame. Tyler carried the Olympic Torch up onto the stage at the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay Finale Concert in Hyde Park in front of 60,000 cheering people and lit the cauldron on the last night of celebrations before the torch's final journey to the opening of the Olympic Games the following day.
Tyler carried the Flame on Thursday 26 July in The City of Westminster. He travelled along Serpentine Drive and finished at the Stage of the Hyde Park Concert area. This journey started at about 07:10pm and covered a distance of 440 yards. There was BBC live coverage throughout the day with an interview of Tyler outside Buckingham Palace at 11.30am and the Torch arriving in Hyde Park from 7pm.
