Student carrys Olympic torch

Ross Ensor carrying Olympic Torch

It was a proud moment for Dudley College student, Ross Ensor, aged 18, as he carried the torch through Dudley on Saturday 30 June.

The sports student was nominated by his tutor for his dedicated voluntary work through the Youth Sport Trust Step into Sport Volunteer Passport.

Ross was given the prestigious honour of carrying the Olympic flame from just past the King Arthur pub on the Birmingham New Road into Dudley Canal Trust, where the flame continued its journey by boat to the Black Country Living Museum.

"It was a fantastic honour to represent the people of Dudley, especially in Dudley. I can't really put the feeling into words" explained Ross, who was cheered on by fellow students, family and friends. "I couldn't believe the crowds who had turned out, it was a little nerve-racking and overwhelming but brilliant to be a part of."
