Christel and Tony first connected at the Youth Olympic Games in 2014. Christel is a national record holder in Long Jump and member of the IOC Communication Commission, who has worked at multiple Games as a freelance editor and reporter. Tony is now International Relations and Games Coordinator at the Lebanese Olympic Committee.
Christel and Tony joined forces to create “Torch Race,” a board game designed to promote Olympic Education, Olympism and the Olympic Movement through play. The concept of the game is based on the torch relay. Each player is a torch bearer with a mission to light the Cauldron. The first player to do so is declared the winner. Along the way, players must face obstacles (such as doping traps), culture questions about the Games and challenges from their peers. Landing on certain squares will also require them to complete some physical activities.
