Torch Relay Concludes its Second-day Journey in Inner Mongolia
    2008-07-10 11:08:24     CRIENGLISH.com

The flame of the Beijing Olympics traveled across Ordos and Baotou on Wednesday in northern China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

In Ordos, more than 100 torchbearers ran along the 6.3-kilometer-long route. Triple Paralympic javelin champion Hass Lao kicked off the relay.

"I have participated in the Paralympic Games for three times. But this moment in my life is still the most exciting. I wish our athletes will compete to their best in the Beijing Games."

The Olympic torch then traveled in Baotou in the afternoon

The flame is now heading for Chifeng, the last stop in the region.

Inner Mongolia is the last ethnic autonomous region to host the Beijing Olympics torch relay.
