Olympic torch carrier Tassy Swallow's trip fear
Tassy Swallow had one fear when she was told she was going to be the second person to carry the Olympic torch - that she would trip up.
"I was worried I was going to be the most famous person in the world for the wrong reasons," she said.
But torchbearer Ms Swallow, 18, from St Ives, was as sure-footed as you would expect from a member of the British junior surfing team.
She took over the flame from sailor Ben Ainslie at Land's End.
Ainslie launched the 70-day relay around the UK before it arrives in London on 27 July.
Ms Swallow, whose mother told her she had been chosen to carry the torch, said: "I thought she was joking.
"We had been watching Eastenders earlier that week and they were talking about someone being picked from that.
"I thought she was having me on," she told the BBC.
"It was a bit terrifying but I was so excited to be doing it.
"In years to come I hope to be sitting with my children watching the Olympics and telling them how I carried the Olympic flame. I'll keep it forever."
She said the run was "absolutely amazing".
"The support of the crowd was crazy," she said.

"I'd seen Ben coming in and I thought I'll go and walk quite slowly, that's what Ben's done, and then the moment caught up with me and I think I ran a bit too fast but I wouldn't change any of it."
Ms Swallow, who has represented Britain four times as member of the junior British surf team, added: "Hopefully it will get surfing more recognised and who knows, it could become an Olympic sport in the future."
And then she was off.
"There's a good spot near here if there are some waves," she said.
"I'll maybe check that out on the way home."
