The Torch Relay of the London Olympics had a little bit of excitement on Monday as the flame travelled from Birmingham to Covertry on day 44 of the trek across Great Britain.

On the same day that 12-year-old Dominic Macgowan, the youngest torchbearer of the relay, carried the flame through Birmingham in Coventry, another two young boys were making headlines for a different reason. The mischievous youngsters managed to avoid security and attempted to grab the torch, before they were ushered away by police. A total of 8-thousand people will carry the flame during its 8-thousand mile, 70-day journey to the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London on July 27th.
