The Olympic Torch Relay presented an impressive convoy of cars with the symbols of the Olympics 2014. Thirteen torchbearers carried the flame through the city. They changed each other every 200 meters. The length of the route was almost 6.5 kilometers. The longest - 600 meters - technically complicated and spectacular segment of the relay ran along the river. On the boat which was built on the model of ancient shipbuilders, the Olympic Flame was driven by the guys from the historical reconstruction club "Varezh" accompanied by the vessels of Murom yacht club, emergency workers and rescuers. Then the way of the Olympic Flame ran along the main streets. All the people of the city waited for this event with the excitement and prepared for it. Hundreds of people gathered on the square near the largest sport complex in the city, in the park of culture and rest named after the 50th anniversary of Soviet power near the monument to the epic hero Ilya Muromets. The famous athletes of our region were awarded with the honor of carrying the Olympic Flame.It was a well-known Murom athlete Vyacheslav Frolov, the champion of the city and the region. From 1976 to 2004 he headed the Sport Committee of the city. It was the time when the mass physical training and sport life of Murom reached its height and two men from this city - Alexey Prokurorovand Viktor Losev - became the Olympic champions. On the stage at the walls of the ancient Holy Trinity Monastery, where there are the relics of Peter and Fevroniya, the relay was taken by 76-year-old Boris Shilov. He is an amazing athlete, a candidate for the master of sports. On the last stage the Olympic Flame was in the hands of the honored master of sport Gennadiy Muratov.
