Pan American Games Torch relay makes its way through the area
David Gough Courier Press Pan American Games torchbearer Melanie Lozon wanted to make the most of her time running with the flaming torch. Lozon, a third-year University of Windsor student who is a Chatham native, was one of 11 Pan Am Games Relay torchbearers in Wallaceburg on June 16. The torch came through Wallaceburg around lunch time, making its way down Dufferin Avenue towards James Street and then onto Murray Street. The torch spent the morning in Sarnia and then headed to Chatham. When Lozon took the torch she danced the entire length of her route. She said she had planned on dancing during her torch run. ?It has to be fun. I like putting on a show for people. I like performing and making it enjoyable and making the kids have fun,? Lozon said. Students from Wallaceburg's elementary schools lined the route, cheering on the runners. ?It was enjoyable. I loved it and it was exactly what I thought it would be, even a little better actually.? Lozon said she wanted to become a torchbearer because she loves everything to do with fitness. ?And it's such a great opportunity for people to get to play in something like this and compete as a team together.? When the Olympic torch relay came to Wallaceburg in December of 2009, CKXS FM 99.1's Greg Hetherington admits he was envious seeing people get the opportunity to be a torchbearer and run with the flame. So when he heard the Toronto Pan Am games was having a torch run, he called it ?an opportunity of a lifetime,? and put his name in and he was randomly selected to be a torchbearer. Hetherington ran the entire 200 metres with his torch. ?I wish I walked now, because it would've lasted longer. It went by pretty fast. I think your adrenaline gets pumping a little bit and you think of what that flame means and how many different places it has been and it always has been burning,? Hetherington said. The torch will make its way to Toronto in time for the Pan Am Games opening ceremony on July 10.
