Today, December 3, Olympic Flame has came to Barnaul. 240 torchbearers were involved for such a great event. Torchbearers are recruited from different fields of sports, medicine, politics, business, etc. Relay route was 44 km length and cross a lot of street in our city. The first torchbearer was Sergei Shubenkov (European Champion, World Championship bronze medalist in 2013 at 110 meters hurdles). The final torchbearer was a skier Vitaly Denisov. He is World bronze medalist in 2001 (10 km + 10 km combined pursuit) and 5th place at Olympic Games in 2002 (Salt Lake City, same discipline). Vitaly and Altai region governor Aleksandr Karlin light a fire in the Olympic bowl on the main square of Barnaul.
