Knight hits the road

 SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Olympics Minister Michael Knight took to the streets Monday, surrounded by swarms of school children as he completed his leg of the Olympic torch relay.

 Knight donned the white torchbearers' uniform and carried the Olympic flame about 500 yards.

 "You can think about these things, but doing it is even better than you imagine," Knight said after his run. "It's a wonderful feeling."

 Tens of thousands of spectators lined the relay route in suburban Sydney as the torch made a brief sojourn into the host city before heading back to Bowral, the childhood home of cricket great Sir Donald Bradman.

 The torch will wind its way around New South Wales state during the 100-day relay to the opening ceremony at Olympic Stadium on Sept. 15.

 Tony Lockett, the career leading goal scorer in Australian rules football, was among the torchbearers Monday.
