Michael Milton will carry the Olympic flame when it comes to Canberra on Thursday 24 April.

As one of two Olympic Torch Bearers chosen by the Canberra community, Michael was part of the celebrations to mark the Chinese New Year in Canberra.

It will be Milton's third experience of carrying the Olympic flame (he was part of the Athens and the Sydney Games torch relays) but says the highlight will always be carrying the Paralympic flame at the Sydney 2000 Opening Ceremony.

'I was the second last bearer. Louise Savauge took the flame from me and lit the torch. I will never forget the feeling of being in that stadium with 10,000 people cheering and screaming. It was a proud moment to have the Paralympic Games on home soil,' explained Milton.

Milton's wife Penni is also involved in the torch relay as part of a 500-strong choir that will accompany the torch on its Canberra journey.
