About the Event
Throughout history burning torches have been used in processions as a sign of remembrance, or as symbolic reference to various ideas and beliefs. The torch itself can consist of a simple candle with cardboard collar to catch any dripping wax, or be an elaborately designed object that references a specific event. The relay torch from the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, held on site at the WPCC, is one such elaborately designed object. But is there more to this Olympic tradition than simply passing the torch?
