Leo Burlá and Pedro Ivo Almeida From UOL, in Rio de Janeiro 08/29/2017 4:00 am
The centerpiece of the opening ceremony on August 5, 2016, the Olympic pyre was in the sights of the eyes of the world at the Games held in Rio de Janeiro. A year after shining at Maracanã, however, it has faded. No shine, disassembled. And without a single person being able to see it.
UOL Esporte found that the emblematic metal object was kept in a box and is abandoned in a shed in the west side of Rio de Janeiro. With no destination in mind, it was left at Maracanã for months and was almost shipped to the museum of the International Olympic Committee in Switzerland. It was in the warehouse of set designer Abel Gomes, general director of the Rio-2016 ceremonies, however, that she ended up stopping.
The Rio-2016 Committee claims that it could not pay the fees to keep the pyre that was lit by former marathon runner Vanderlei Cordeiro de Lima. After a round of negotiations, the costs of import taxes were reduced and the object remained in the Olympic city, more precisely in a box in the Santa Cruz district.
The intention was to create a museum with several records from the Pan 2007 and Rio-2016. According to Mario Andrada, communication director of the Rio-2016 Committee, Ilha de Pombeba, in Barra, would be the place that would house this collection under the responsibility of the Olympic Committee of Brazil (COB). Sought out by the report, the COB's staff informed that "there is no decision" on the matter.
Like the pyre, the revolving sculpture that made up the object is also discarded. The work, by the American artist Anthony Howe, produced a great plastic effect during the lighting of the fire.
With one of the biggest Olympic symbols abandoned, tourists interested in taking a picture can go to the region of Igreja da Candelária, in Rio's Port Area. The alternative pyre that was installed for the Games is still there. It doesn't have the same shine and representation, but at least it's not inside a box.
