Olympic Torch Relay


Organize your own torch relay! As part of every Olympic Games, a torch relay is planned that often involves schools, clubs and local sport dignitaries. The relay is symbolic in that it leads to igniting the cauldron during the Opening Ceremonies, and officially opens the Olympic Games. The flame will stay ignited until the Olympic Games are officially closed.
