Latvia 8 August: Riga - Tukums
beach time in Latvia
At the border of the City of Jurmala we were greeted by the first of many Jurmala sport clubs that joined us in a big relay all the way to the other border of the community!
One of our special guests at the ceremony was Marija Naumova - winner of the Eurovision song contest in 2002.
Besides being an outstanding singer and an inspiration for many people she has supported the community in various ways - a truly humble and sincere human being.
Some kids on the beach were really surprised to see the torch - even more surprised when we presented them the torch and told about the run!
When the hockey team got the torch it was almost impossible to stop them. They ran the full 5 km in top-speed!
