The 2014 Games Flame began its journey from its historical homeland. It will take another 65,000 kilometers to Sochi.
The Olympic flame lighting ceremony takes place every two years in Greece according to a special rite. The torch ignites naturally - from the sun's rays reflected in the mirror. The process was accompanied by a performance - several Greek women dressed as priestesses and male athletes perform traditional dances, and the high priestess passes the fire to the first participant in the relay. This year the Greek skier Yiannis Antoniou became the winner, who after passing his section passed the torch to Russian hockey player Alexander Ovechkin. The fire, originated in Ancient Olympia near the temple of the goddess Hera, travels across Greece until October 5, and then will be transported to Moscow. More than 14 thousand people will carry the torch before the start of the Olympic Games in Sochi.
