Sidney Crosby and the Olympic flame 

As the crowd goes nuts, hockey superstar looks pretty chuffed to be carrying the torch in his hometown.

"These shots were taken in front of the citadel. The crowd was going nuts, and you could tell that as big of an international star Sidney is, he was feeling the moment and was wearing his pride on his face with a smile ear to ear," Coast freelance photographer Riley Smith says.

"I ran along side hammering out shots with my motordrive," Smith told The Coast, "elbowing through the throngs of cops, coca colympic workers, paparazzi, news media, and the adoring fans."
