Samsung Gulf Electronics has received over 130 nominations for Olympic torchbearers across the Gulf region for its Samsung's Torchbearer Nomination Campaign.

Samsung is one of the Presenting Partners of the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay.  

Torchbearers that are selected will be getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to carry the Olympic Flame in the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay in the UK, just ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

"We are thrilled with the response we received for the Torchbearer Nomination Campaign and would like to thank everyone for nominating their family, friends and colleagues to carry the Olympic Flame. We have come across several touching stories of people who have gone that extra mile within their communities and have truly inspired others to do the same," said Marco Vocale, Head of Corporate Marketing at Samsung Gulf Electronics.

Nominees for the torchbearer's competition have varied greatly in age, nationality and achievements, according to Samsung and all entries will be reviewed by a judging panel and successful nominees will receive a conditional offer from the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in December 2011.

 The Torchbearers will be announced in February 2012 and Samsung will also be nominating well-known regional personalities who have helped better their community.
