The Olympic torch is part of a tradition going back thousands of years to the original Greek Olympics; it symbolizes the blessing of Apollo, the sun god (the Olympic flame is first ignited with sunlight, using a concave mirror to focus the light). We no longer worship Apollo, but we still light the torch.
The first person to light the olympic flame was German athlete Fritz Schligen at the 1936 Games in Berlin.
The person who will light the torch is Boris Johnson since he is the Mayor and he has a lot to do with the Olympics. Also after the Olympic games they are thinking about demolishing it because Spurs want it for their training stadium but also West Ham want it as well they said they would only want half of the Olympic stadium and the rest of can be used for athletics.
