Olympic Torch Mushes On
The symbol of the Olympic games continues to travel across northern Canada.
The Olympic torch relay got under way bright and early last Wednesday morning in Old Crow, Yukon.
The Olympic flame rode into town in style on a dog-sled. Martha Benjamin was the final torch-bearer in Old Crow. She used to be a member of the town's cross county ski team. After arriving via the dog sled, Benjamin lit the Olympic cauldron at the community celebration in old crow.
The torch is on a 106-day journey across Canada on the way to Vancouver, the host city for the 2010 winter games.
