Can you help? Crowdsourcing mystery torchbearers with The Guardian

Yesterday we published a spreadsheet?on The Guardian's Datablog?of?500 torchbearers running without a story.?Want to help investigate??

There are plenty of curious names in there alongside the sporting stars, celebs and genuine community heroes – including a recurring appearance of the names of telecomms execs.

There are tips on tracing people here?and a?selection of those with images?if you want to pitch in and help us clear up all 500. We're already a third of the way there.?

You'll find the spreadsheet here.
