Description


Official 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics torch, constructed of recycled aluminum and colored resin, measuring 27″ in length and 3.5″ at its widest point, designed by Sao Paulo studio Chelles & Hayashi and manufactured by Recam Laser. The torch features a white body that automatically expands upon being lit to reveal multicolored segments drawn from the hues of the Brazilian flag, representing the natural wonders surrounding the host city. The Rio Olympic emblem also adorns the top. Includes the original brown carrying bag, tube (top cap missing), a custom-made display stand featuring details of the Rio relay itinerary and a map, and an official Rio 2016 certificate of authenticity issued to torchbearer Matthew Chotos. The torch relay began in Olympia on April 21, and concluded on August 5 at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janiero, after visiting over three hundred of Brazil's towns and cities. A record number of countries participated in the Rio Games, including first time entrants Kosovo and South Sudan. Ten thousand and nine hundred athletes participated in 306 medalling events of 45 sports disciplines. A rare opportunity to own a relay torch from the most recent Summer Olympic games.

Due to the size and fragile nature of this item, it is considered OVERSIZED. Please call RR Auction for a shipping quote.
