And a former Taekwondo champion has been chosen as one of the people to carry it on the Hillingdon leg of its journey around the country.
Fourth dan black belt Mohammed Munir Azizshalizi, of Hayes, will be a torchbearer three days before the flame, kindled by the rays of the sun on Mount Olympus in Greece, is due at the Olympic Stadium, in Stratford, for the games' opening ceremony on July 27.
Since 2000, Mr Azizshalizi has scooped many national titles and won eight London Open Championship gold medals, as well as competing in America and Taiwan. He was crowned British Junior National Champion 2005, and British Senior National Champion the following year.
Injury forced him to retire from competitive martial arts in 2006, but he went on to establish the Superior Taekwondo club, in Greenford, where he is chief instructor, and he hopes to get back to full fitness.
The flame will be carried through more than 1,000 UK cities, towns and villages over 70 days, setting off from Land's End, the UK's southernmost point, on May 19.
The route of the torch through the borough and its scheduled time have also been published - see below.
