Georgian Carrying Olympic Torch Wed.

The Olympic flame is making its way around England before its date July 27 in London for the Games’ opening ceremonies. One of Wednesday’s torch bearers is from Georgia: Gerry Brown, who lives in Cumming.

Brown works for Coca-Cola and is one of 22 people the company picked to carry the flame because of their community service efforts. He came by our studios before he left to talk about his trip.
