SOMEONE THAT GOES THE EXTRA MILE IN LIFE.
To find the inspirational people needed for the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay, Samsung asked the public to nominate people they know who go that extra mile in life. This once-in-a-life-time opportunity to carry the Olympic Flame generated a fantastic response, with over 11,000 Local Heroes being submitted.
