Olympic torch relay

I thought the idea of a relay was that the baton, or in this case the torch, should be passed on from one runner to the next. I take it, from this BBC article,that around 8000 have been made to give each runner their own. What a ridiculous waste, especially as some are now selling them for a fat profit and not keeping them as a souvenir.
