Vintage West Virginia: Olympic torch run

These volunteers were among a relay team that carried the Olympic flame from Canada — from left, Ronnie Peggs of St. Albans carries the torch, Charles J. Spainhour of St. Albans, Scott Miller of South Charleston, Paul Prendergast of Charleston, Roger Pitt of Sissonville, and Charles T. Spainhour of St. Albans. The torch was to be presented to Gov. Arch Moore at the Capitol. Moore was to light an “eternal flame” from the torch and then the flame was then to be carried to the headquarters of the National Track and Field Hall of Fame on Kanawha Boulevard.
