Olympic Flame Torches and Cauldrons: A Retrospective - The latest article at Dark Roasted blend

Check out the latest online article at Dark Roasted Blend, entitled Olympic Flame Torches and Cauldrons: A Retrospective.

Now that the Olympics are over, it's time to reflect on some of the greatest and most innovative Olympic designs. Each edition of the summer and winter Olympic Games has featured a cauldron, in which the Olympic flame is lit. The cauldron is actually a link to the games as they existed in ancient Greece and first became part of the modern Olympics at the Amsterdam Games in 1928. The torch relay was introduced at the Berlin Olympics in 1936. At Dark Roasted Blend, we examine some of the cauldrons and relay torches that have graced the world’s most famous sporting event since the revival of the Olympics in 1896.
