Fuels used for the Olympic torchesEarly on, Olympic torches used everything from olive oil to gunpowder as a source of fuel. Some torches were lit with a combination of hexamine and naphthalene along with an igniting liquid. Occasionally, these early-model Olympic torches proved dangerous to the torchbearer. For example, the torch used in the 1956 Games was lit by a mix of magnesium and aluminum, which wound up searing the arms of the torchbearer during the final leg of the Olympic relay. Liquid fuels, which become gaseous to create a flame, were first used to light the torch for the 1972 Summer Games in Munich, and they have been used to ignite every Olympic torch since then. The benefits of liquid fuels include safety and easy storage.

Along the way you can learn about Olympic history, geography, and mapping skills.Lighting the flame has been an important part of every Olympic opening ceremony since it was first used in Berlin in 1936. The idea of keeping a flame lit throughout the Games was first used by the ancient Greeks in Olympia.A few months before the opening of the Games, a ceremony is organized on the site of the original Games, the ancient sanctuary of Olympia. An actress dressed as a ceremonial priestess, in the robes of the ancient Greeks, lights the torch via the same technique used in the original Games.She uses a parabolic mirror to focus light rays from the sun. The parabolic mirror has a curved shape. When it is held toward the sun, the curvature focuses the rays to a single point. The energy from the sun creates a great deal of heat. The priestess holds a torch in the center of the parabolic mirror, and the heat ignites the fuel in the torch, sparking a flame.If the sun is not shining on the day of the lighting ceremony, the priestess can light the torch with a flame that was lit on a sunny day before the ceremony.The flame is carried in a fire pot to an altar in the ancient Olympic stadium, where it is used to light the first runner's torch.For the Winter Games, the relay actually begins at the monument to Pierre de Coubertin (the man who founded the modern Olympic games in 1896), which is located near the stadium.

It is often a widely known, highly decorated athlete from the host country. Recent examples include Li Ning, China's greatest gymnast, Beijing, 2008.
