The Olympic Flame

The Olympic flame is ignited buy the sun. It keeps burning until the games’ closing.

The Olympic games were started in ancient greece the flame was first lit by a curved mirror the woman use the sun to light torch. Once the flame is lit a woman that is wearing a ancient robe will show everyone around and she will light a little bowl that has oil and it is used to light the olympic flame. Runners run to the host city before they run to the stadium.

At the opening ceremony the flame is the most important part of the games. The flame stays alight throughout the games.
