The Olympic torch bearer.
It is the person who carries the Olympic torch :)
being a torch bearer in the 96 Olympic games i would value it as priceless
Every torch-bearer in the relay is allowed to keep their individual torch.
Olympic torch-bearers, nominated by sponsors of the Olympic games, carry the Olympic flame from its source, in Athens, to the main stadium, using a series of gas-filled Olympic torches, much like a relay race. Each torch-bearer is given their own Olympic torch (which they keep) which is lit by the Olympic flame carried by the previous torch-bearer. To preserve the flame's continuity, the Olympic flame is carried in special safety-lamps while travelling by air or sea. Once at the main stadium, during the opening ceremony, the final torch-bearer lights the Olympic beacon which remains lit throughout the games. The Olympic flame is therefore the flame itself, while the Olympic torches are the receptacles that carried the flame from Athens to the main stadium.

The last torch bearer, and the person to light the Olympic Flame, at the 1972 Summer Olympics was West German junior 1500 meter runner Gunther Zahn.
The Olympic flame is ignited after having passed the torch from one runner to the next over the course of the months prior to the Olympics. The final bearer touches the torch to the cauldron to start the ceremony. The FIRST torch is lit using the rays of the sun concentrated by a parabolic mirror- at the site of the ancient Olympics in Greece.
The Torch Bearer was created on 1916-09-25.
