One of Oklahoma's Own carried the Olympic torch in England Tuesday morning.

We caught up with Dr. Bob Block, from Tulsa, as he was training here last week.

His entire run Tuesday morning was about 440 yards through the Oxford area, and lasted about three minutes.

He trained with a 10-pound weight, but the actual torch was much lighter.

He told us he was chosen because of his role as president of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

In all, there are 8,000 torch bearers for the Olympics.
