Roy Wood, coach at the famed 'Snake Pit' catch wrestling gym, was one of the Olympic Torch bearers as the flame was carried through Wigan, Bolton and the surrounding areas in the North West of England as part of the pre-2012 Summer Games celebrations. Wood is pictured with daughter Andrea, and will be coaching Maria Dunn of Guam at the Women's Olympic Freestyle event in London. HT Richard Moore.
