Who invented the first Olympic torch?

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.

Why do they carry the olympic flame from mt Olympus to each modern olympic game?

The flame is not carried from mt Olympus but from the ancient sanctuary of Olympia in southeastern Greece, in the regional district of Elia (Ηλιεία in Greek), in Peloponnese. The first Olympic games ever (named after the region) took place there in 776 BC. The flame used to burn non stop during the Games back at the time, and it symbolised the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus. The Olympic torch relay from Greece to various cities around the world, has no ancient precedent whatsoever and it was introduced for the first time in the Olympic games of Berlin in 1936 (the Nazi Olympics) by Carl Diem, who imagined a symbolic pageant that would give the Nazi Germany a bit of the old glory of ancient Greece, by the transit of a lit flame from Greece to Berlin by a relay of torch-bearing runners. Although the transfer of the Greek flame around the world gives a mystifying glory of the past to the modern Olympic Games, it is not understood why this Nazi extravaganza is still happening today.
