Rio 2016 torch relay


Recommended Posts

^^ Many (at least here in GB) thought it was overdesigned and the big frame (which was supossed to represent a Firebird feather) made it look chunky. Not mentioning the torch had a lot of issues such as the fire getting suddenly extinguished in many awkward moments. A record number of 44 times, to be exact, making it one of the worst torches ever, technicaly speaking.

No, The Moscow Times stopped counting the flame-outs at "44" by the 8th week on Russian soil becuz it had become so embarrassing. And no one took count of the flame-outs on the Greek run. So at "least 44x;" but obviously there were a few more before and after.

It only opens when lit... Nice touch!


I get what they were trying to do with the green as the mountains and the blue as water but towards the bottom it gets a bit too plain.

but the plain part is where the hand is placed...
