Hong Kong's golden girl Lee Lai-shan has been named by officials of the Qingdao government as the final torch bearer at the opening ceremony at the sailing centre on August 9. 'It is a great honour that they have chosen me. I'm so thrilled. Not only was I the first person to carry the flame on Chinese soil, but I will now also be the last person,' San San said. On August 9, the flame will be taken from Beijing to Qingdao where another ceremonial cauldron will be lit. Lee will hand the torch to the person who lights the cauldron.
