Olivia ‘excited’ for top honour

Have your say

A SCHOOLGIRL who has cystic fibrosis, diabetes and liver failure is excited to carry the Olympic flame.

Olivia Ford, aged 15, of Dronfield, will have crowds cheering her on through Chesterfield tomorrow.

The Henry Fanshawe School student said: “I’m so excited.

“The white suit came two days ago and I couldn’t wait to try it on.

“My mum nominated me but I never thought I’d get the chance to take part in this.

“I was so shocked to get it.”
