After being lit in Olympia, the flame is taken by car and plane to Athens via Andravida, from where it takes off for Dubrovnik.
On 30 January 1984, the first torchbearer on Yugoslav soil was Veselin Djuho, a member of the Yugoslav water polo team which won gold in Los Angeles in 1984 and at Seoul in 1988.
A second flame was lit from the original flame, and the relay split into two parts between Dubrovnik and Sarajevo, one going through the east of the country and the other through the western part.
A total of 89 local Olympic torch relays were organised with a view to promoting Olympism as widely as possible. The torches used for these relays were lit from the main flame and taken to winter sports resorts and sports centres in the region. These local relays involved 7,500 people.
