        Torch Relay    
               The Torch Relay area is responsible for the planning and activities related to the passage of the Olympic flame from Olympia in Greece to and around the host country, up to the Olympic stadium. The OCOG may establish a functional area dealing with Torch Relay aspects.
               The introduction of London Torch Relay
            The traditional lighting ceremony took place on 10 May 2012 at the Temple of Hera, Olympia, home of the Ancient Olympic Games.The torch relay travelled around Greece, and arriving at the Panathinaiko Stadium, in Athens on 17 May for the handover ceremony.
            The torch relay will last 70 days, with 66 evening celebrations, six island visits with about 8,000 people carrying the torch a total distance of about 8,000 miles (12,800 km), starting from Land's End in Cornwall. The torch had one day outside of the United Kingdom when it visited Dublin on 6 June.[4] The relay will focus on national heritage sites, locations with sporting significance, key sporting events, schools registered with the Get Set School Network, green spaces and biodiversity, Live Sites (city locations with large screens), festivals and other events.
           The torch relay will bring the Olympics to within 1 hour of 95% of the UK population. It is intended to help the London 2012 Olympic Legacy by getting school children, local celebrities and local people involved.
           Following a three month tour by LOCOG, local authorities submitted ideas to regional government and LOCOG by May 2010, such as Oxfordshire. However some counties such as Somerset declined to enter ideas on grounds of costs such as road closures, citing costs of up to £300,000.
            On 26 May, 2010 the start date of the Torch Relay was announced, along with three presenting partners – Coca-Cola, Lloyds TSB and Samsung. The torchbearer public nomination campaign, announced on 18 May 2011, called 'Moment to Shine', gave people across the UK the chance to be involved in the countdown to the start of the London 2012 Games.

        伦敦奥运火炬传递路线图
        文化链接:奥林匹克火炬接力(Olympic Torch relay)是奥运会的前奏,是古代奥运会和现代奥林匹克运动之间强有力的连接,是仅次于奥运会本身的最重要的传播工具。火炬接力在100多天的传递活动中,传播奥林匹克精神、传递友谊与和平的信息,点燃人们对奥运会的激情。火炬接力使主办国人民有机会全面感受奥运会的力量,也为举办国家和城市提供了展示自己的机会。
        小编按(火炬传递可来源于久远的古希腊神话哦):火,在人类的生活中,一直扮演着重要的角色。掌握好对火的使用,是人类历史上取得的重要进步。在世界众多民族的信仰之中,都有关于对火崇拜的内容。   以古希腊人为例,他们认为火在世界上的出现,源自普罗米修斯的神话。火的起源使之成为神圣的元素。希腊人在主神庙前燃烧着永不熄灭的圣火。火种采集的方式是圣火纯洁性的重要保证。圣火是通过一个叫“skaphia ”的半圆形凹面镜,将阳光集中采集而成的。
