First Presidency Passes Olympic Torch

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- As expected, LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley handled the Olympic Torch, passing it on to fellow members of the First Presidency as part of the torch relay. But none of the First Presidency actually carried the torch, leaving that to Elders Robert D. Hales and Neal A. Maxwell of the Quorum of the Twelve. The Salt Lake Organizing Committee reported that Elders Hales and Maxwell work the official Olympic uniforms and were part of the official relay. Elder hales brought the torch to the First Presidency, handing it to Elder Faust, who gave it to Elder Monson, who passed it to President Hinckley. The torch was then given to Elder Maxwell, who took it on to the next relay point. All told, the Church leadership carried the torch from State Street west to Main Street.
