At Canada Olympic Park they lit the small venue cauldron today...

The lighters were ski jumper Alex Pretorius and Robyn Ainsworth (nee Perry) who lit the cauldron at McMahon Stadium during the opening ceremony of the Calgary 1988 Winter Olympics.

Any other cauldrons out there being relit? Vancouver's?

I didn't know where else to put this but, I'm surprised that the organisers of Athens 2004 didn't put the Cauldron over the 2 Arches, so 2 Arches of lines of fire, if you get what I mean.
