What is the torch relay?

Well, first of all the Olympics are an international sporting event that has been around since 776 BC! The Olympic flame is lit by reflecting the rays of the sun off a parabolic mirror onto a torch a few weeks before each Games. It's been all over the world and really is one of the best things that unites the world as it symbolizes the Olympics and represents peace, unity, friendship, and brotherhood. The torch relay is where people, also known as torchbearers, carry the Olympic flame by torch through the country that is hosting the Olympics. The flame travels from Greece to the host country, then travels around the country ending its journey when the Olympic cauldron is lit during the opening ceremony, and it stays lit until the closing ceremony. hope that helped :) anymore questipon just let me know :)
