Description


Official 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics torch used during the Olympic relay, 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 drawstring carrying bag and tube.

The torch relay began in Olympia on April 21, and concluded on August 5 at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, 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 medal events in 45 sports disciplines. A rare opportunity to own a relay torch from the most recent summer games.
