Description


Uncommon official International Olympic committee (IOC) centennial torch, constructed of aluminum and wood, measuring 21.75″ in length and 6″ at its widest point. The main body is ribbed in a fashion similar to the twenty-two reeds found on the Atlanta torch, with a band above the wooden handle engraved with the names all the host cities and their dates since 1896; bottom ring slightly loose from band. An example of this unique torch was lit in Greece on March 30, 1996, and designed specifically for use at an event in Athens hosted by the Hellenic Olympic Committee to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first modern Games. Representatives from each host city since 1896 attended and participated in a torch run inside Athens Olympic Stadium using these torches. An elegant, unused torch commemorating one hundred years of Olympic excellence.
