UNC freshman decathlete Joe Hutchinson to carry Olympic torch in May


As a decathlete, Joe Hutchinson is accustomed to sprinting, shot putting, throwing the discus and pole vaulting. But this summer, one of the most meaningful athletic experiences of his life will be an easy, 300-meter jog. Hutchinson, a freshman decathlete on UNC’s track and field team and an international student from Melksham, England, will fly home to run the Olympic torch before the games begin in London.
