On Saturday evening, a gathering was held involving the 208 torchbearers and 52 bodyguards for the Hangzhou leg of the Olympic torch relay. At the meeting, the torchbearers discussed the idea of using hand gestures and body language to express support for the victims of the recent earthquake that hit southwest China. A guide was created here, involving three gestures that can be used to symbolize solidarity and love. The following is the text of the guide:
Hand gesture 1: one-handed fist
Handshake 2: palm to palm
Handshake three: tight handshake
