By the time the Olympic Flame lights up the Olympic Stadium in PyeongChang it will have journeyed across Greece and then onward to Korea. It will have been carried by 7,500 torch bearers and have travelled through nine provinces and eight major cities before it lights up the Olympic Cauldron to mark the start of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games, where it will burn for the 16 days of competition.

Greek cross-country skier Apostolos Angelis was the first torchbearer and he passed the flame on to Korean football player Park Ji-Sung during a lighting ceremony that was attended by IOC President Thomas Bach, Korea’s Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee President Lee Hee-beom.
