Along with 400,000 sports fans, it was the perfect place to unveil Coca-Cola and Samsung as Presenting Partners for the Youth Olympic Torch Relay.

The 2012 torch bearers will cover over 3,500 kilometres in 18 days and will visit all nine of Austria’s Federal provinces; making sure that the whole nation gets involved in the spirit of the Games!

The torch will be lit in Greece on 17 December and will make its journey around the country before arriving in time for the Opening Ceremony on 13 January 2012.
