Olympics cauldron

Recommended Posts

Tried to make a recopilation of Winter cauldrons as they look today. Before Cortina, I wasn't able to find where the Oslo, St. Moritz or Garmisch cauldrons are today (i suposse the later was lost during the war)

Cortina - Apparently, it still exists, but this is the only pic I could find of it. Seems they lit the old cauldron again when they celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the games back then when the Torino 2006 torch relay was happening.

Squaw Valley - At its original location

Innsbruck - Still at Bergisel, with a third cauldron added for the 2012 Winter YOG

Grenoble - Seems like the original bowl which used to be at the top of the scaffold back in 1968 is now located at the Olympic Park as a monument, which is sometimes lit for special ocassions

Sapporo - It is located on its original location at Makonakai Park which is still regulary used, mostly as a Tenis courtyard during summer

Jose, nice pics.  Per my article, St. Moritz is missing in action.  Garmisch, they found the inner vessel.  Oslo's was found and is inside in the Norwegian Olympic Museum in Lillehammer.
