Cruise carries a torch for the Olympics!

June 18, 2004 15:52 IST

Aishwarya Rai and Rahul Dravid got the loudest cheers in Delhi when they ran with the Olympic torch on its 46,800-mile journey that began June 4.

Wednesday saw Hollywood hotshots run with the flame in Los Angeles. The stars: Tom Cruise, Ellen DeGeneres and Sylvester Stallone. They carried the flame to -- hold your breath -- the Rocky theme. 

Los Angeles Mayor James Hahn, who also ran with the torch, said: "This is a great day for Los Angeles and a great day for our world. The torch arrived in the land of the free."
