Lighter of Olympic cauldron decided

BY foxsports • July 21, 2012

The decision on who will light the cauldron at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics has been made, apparently.

British Olympic Association chief executive Andy Hunt says he and London organizing committee counterpart Paul Deighton have come to a ''mutually agreeable solution.''

Hunt, however, would not identify who will get the honor, but pledged that ''it will be a 'wow' moment.''

Hunt also says that Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle, the man behind Friday's opening ceremony, has also tried to influence the decision by making recommendations.

Hunt says ''we can chose to support or not to support the recommendations.''
