TORCH
The Olympic torch carries the flame from Olympia to the great bowl erected in the stadium of the city in which the games are to be held.During stops on the way the flame is kept alive in a small bowl specially designed for the purpose. The flame should never be allowed to die. Another flame is kept burning in a miner's lamp is used to re-light the torch carried by the runners. Now as many torches as there are runners are made for the occasion, so that the latter can keep them as souvenirs.The international federation of Olympic memorabilia includes people who collect torches as well as other souvenirs of the Olympics.
