The Olympic torch bearers carry the torch across the world until the opening day of the games, then at the ceremonies they light it up on the cauldron where it burns and does not go out until end of games.
It is a torch that people light up at the start and end of the Olympics.
There was no torch. The Olympic torch was made up in 1936. The Olympic torch was invented as a way of symbolically creating a connection between Olympia in Greece and an athletics meeting in some city like Berlin. The ancient Olympics didn't need a symbolic connection to Olympia because they were actually held at Olympia.
The olympic flame is lit in Olympia month before the games, the exact route the torch takes is up to the individual Olympic organizing committees, however after the protests in Europe with the Beijing torch, the IOC has now said that after the greek leg, the enitre torch relay must take place in the host country.
Adolf Hitler came up with it. Research it.
it didnt get lit up in 1992 because it had now place to put the flam
she was fameous
The torch has gone out a couple of times so far on its trip around Britain. Fortunately they had a back up. Last week a couple of little kids begged to be able to carry the torch and then tried running off with it.
Cheerleading will not be in the 2008 olympic games, it is up for consideration for the 2012 summer Olympics
