Olympic Torch Lighting Ceremony

The Olympic torch is lit by an actress dressed as the High Priestess using a parabolic mirror to reflect the rays of the sun. The ceremony organised by the Hellenic Olympic Committee (HOC) to light the Olympic Flame was held inside the Temple of Hera at the historic ruins of the home of the ancient Olympic Games.
