A PROTOTYPE version of the 2012 Olympic torch visited Hallam FM, a year before the real version is paraded through the city.
The search is on for bearers to apply to be a part of the torch relay that will pass through Sheffield on June 25, 2012.
Hallam FM presenter Big John got the chance to get his hands on the prototype - but next year any Sheffield resident could be carrying the real version through the city.
Anyone over the age of 12 can be nominated to take part in the relay.
