Basketball: Gaels' Leger takes part in Olympic torch relay

Queen's forward Mitch Leger has always been a good passer for a big man.

The Golden Gaels forward took part in the Kingston portion of the Olympic torch relay, running a leg just east of the city in Gananoque. He passed the flame to Shiri Gabrie at 5:31pm.

Leger, who is fifth in the OUA in scoring (20.5 ppg) and first in reboundig (11.1), gets to keep the torch he carried as well as his official torch bearer outfit.

It sounds like it was a fun time in K-town. More than 2,000 people gathered downtown for a community celebration afterward.

One hopes a few more CIS current athletes get to carry the flame (presuming a few have already).
