Published Tuesday 14th of August 2012 04:41:18 PM

Prior Park Year 12 pupil and the youngest person to ski to the South Pole, Amelia Hempleman-Adams was given the honour of carrying the Olympic Torch on the London Eye.

Amelia was asked just a week before the event if she would be a torch bearer on one of London's most iconic tourist attractions - the London Eye. The remarkable images of her holding the Olympic Torch aloft, while standing in a specially-built cage on top of one of the capsules, hundreds of feet above ground, have been beamed around the world.

The College congratulates Amelia on another feat that has capped a tremendous year for her. See more images in the Image Gallery.
