91-Year-old gets to relive Olympic past by carrying torch

Tommy Godwin, 91, will be one of the torchbearers for this year's London Olympics.

The last time that The Olympics were in London was in 1948, and Godwin was an athlete and won two bronze medals in cycling.

Godwin said, " To think that what I achieved 64 years ago is bringing so much interest in my life, to think that I will have one of those torches. It is something so special."

Godwin counts Guinness, and raw egg as the secret to his success.
