Description


Official 1992 Barcelona Olympics torch, comprised of aluminum and plastic, measuring 26″ in length and 7″ at its widest point, designed by Andre Ricard. The metal body is inscribed in gold text, “XXV Olimpiada Barcelona 1992,” and bears the emblem of the Games. The sliding red switch to reverse is engraved "000334." Exhibits noticeable wear to the rubber grip, as well as scattered surface pitting and scuffs to metal and plastic. The massive fifty-day relay included nearly 9,500 torchbearers who carried the Olympic flame by foot and bicycle for a total of 5,940 km throughout Spain. The lighting of the cauldron at the opening ceremonies was especially memorable, as Paralympic archer Antonio Rebollo ignited the cauldron by shooting an arrow lit from the Olympic flame. An impressive torch with a decidedly modern design.
