Description


Official 1972 Munich Olympics torch, comprised of metal and steel, measuring 29″ in length and 8.5″ at its widest, designed by Friedrich Krupp AG. The torch bears Olympic rings and the inscription “Spiele der XX Olympiad, Munchen 1972” on its handle, with the name of the designer engraved on the bottom. The Munich Games emblem designs a platform at the base of the combustion tube. Platform and handle feature scattered small areas of rust, scuffing, and a small dent to underside of platform. Traveling a shade over 5,500 km over the course of 30 days, roughly 6,000 torchbearers were used to reach and light the Olympic flame at the opening ceremony on August 26, 1972. A coveted artifact commemorating Germany’s stalwart role in international sport.
