In the sanctuary of Olympia, where the ancient Games took place, a flame burnt permanently on the altar of the goddess Hestia, but transportation of the flame to the site of the modern Olympics did not happen until the 1936 Games in Berlin. It was Carl Diem, Hitler's Games organizer, who proposed a torch relay from the site of the ancient flame. Today, the International Olympic Committee says that the torch "transmits a message of peace and friendship amongst peoples". Extra info; The organizers of the London 2012 Olympics will however most likely bring to an end the torch relay as we know it. The new plan is to take the Olympic torch on a "sports heritage" tour of Britain in 2012, rather than a round-the-world relay under a plan being touted by embattled Olympic chiefs. Worried about the damage caused by Beijing's controversial international relay, which became a focus of violent protests by Free Tibet protesters, they want a gentler countdown to the 2012 Games in London. Instead of being carried through global capitals and trouble spots, the torch could instead take in classic British sporting venues in 2012.
