            The flame in the snow!Legendary Norwegian skiers carried out the entirety of the transport of the flame. (Oslo 1952) The flame went into the Arctic Circle at Inuvik, with stages carried out by snow-bike and skidoo. (Calgary 1988)

            The flame on horseback!A completely equestrian relay was organized for these Games. (Stockholm 1956) Because of Australia's embargo against horses entering the country, the 1956 equestrian competition was relocated to Stockholm, Sweden, and a second torch relay brought the Olympic flame to the Olympic site there. Most of the distance from Greece to Stockholm was covered on horseback. And on a camel! This is how the flame crossed the Australian desert. (Sydney 2000)

            The flame in the Wild West!The modes of transport used bring to mind great moments in American history. For example, the flame travelled in an Indian canoe, by Pony Express, on a Mississippi steamboat, and on a wagon of the Union Pacific. (Atlanta 1996)

            The flame in the water, under water and on the water!In the sea off Veracruz, Mexico, swimmers carried the flame from the boat Durango to the shore. (Mexico 1968) A diver swam across the port of Marseilles holding the flame out of the water. (Grenoble 1968) A diver carried the flame under water at the Great Barrier Reef. (Sydney 2000) The flame travelled on the frigate Cataluna for the passage between Greece and Spain and arrived on Spanish soil in Empuries, the gateway to Greek civilization on the Iberian peninsular (circa 600 B.C.) (Barcelona 1992)

            The flame in space!To show the world the technological competence of their country, the Canadians organized the transmission of the flame by satellite between Athens and Ottawa. (Montreal 1976)

            The flame faster than the speed of sound!The journey from Athens to Paris took place at Supersonic speed-on Concorde. (Albertville 1992)

            The flame in the sky!For the first time in the history of the Olympics, the flame did a parachute jump. ( Lillehammer 1994)

            The maternal flame!Twelve months with babies born in 1988 took part in the relay on the stage from Chungju to Kangnung. (Seoul 1988)
