OFW to carry
2012 Olympic torch

Reymundo “Apol” Enteria from Peace Village, Antipolo City will be one of the selected individuals who will carry and pass on the official Olympic 2012 torch in London starting May 19.

Enteria, an overseas Filipino worker based in Kent, England will be joined by Filipino-British Steven Cheung, who will represent various countries and groups as Olympic torch bearers in the torch relay across the British Isles for the 2012 Olympics.

Enteria comes from an OFW family, with his mother having worked in a Hong Kong factory, while his brother and brother-in-law are both working in Saudi Arabia. His father is a jeepney driver.

Enteria himself also worked in Saudi Arabia for many years before he went to the United Kingdom to work as occupational therapist.

On July 22, Enteria will do the 300-meter run for the borough of Barking and Dagenham. The torch relay will start on May 19 until the opening day of the London Olympics Games on July 27.*PNA
