KUSA - A Parker man got stopped at the airport for having a huge, metal, Olympic torch in his bag.
Mark Hall was stopped and asked by security about it. They all asked to take pictures with the Olympic torch.
Hall had the opportunity to be part of the Olympic torch relay in Russia. He was at the site of the 2014 winter games.
Hall's leg of the relay in St. Petersburg, Russia was a little over 200 yards. He says it went by fast.
He works for VISA, one of the sponsors of the winter Olympics. Out of 9,000 employees, only three were chosen to run with the torch.
