carries the Torch in Tofino, BC

VANCOUVER, Nov. 16 /CNW/ - South Korean short track speedskater Lee Kyung Chun completed her Olympic Torch relay experience in Canada as she ran in Tofino, BC. Her run day in Tofino was the scene of many dramatic moments as the flame was held briefly by a surfer riding a wave at Long Beach in Pacific Rim National Park, and as Ms Chun passed the flame off to a skateboarder who took it through Tofino's skate park.

Video package includes footage of the first week of the Torch relay, including the flame being rowed across Elk Lake by Canada's eights rowing team, Torch launch celebrations in Victoria, a surfer carrying the flame on a wave, and Ms. Chun's run in Tofino, BC. Included as well is footage of Ms. Chun's pre-trip to Victoria and Tofino this summer where she enjoyed key tourism experiences such as the Butchart Gardens, High tea at the Empress Hotel, and whale watching in Victoria, BC, as well as bear watching, and a scenic walk through old growth rain forest on Meares Island with a local first nations guide in Tofino, BC.
