Lighting of the flame in Olympia (Innsbruck 1976 OG)

The flame was lit a few months before the opening of the Innsbruck 1976 Games. A ceremony was organised on the ancient site of the Olympic Games, at the ancient sanctuary of Olympia. The flame was lit by two actresses playing the role of priestesses of Hera using the ancient method of reflecting the sun’s rays from a parabolic mirror
