What is the route of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Torch Relay? – NBC10 Philadelphia

One of the most iconic traditions of the Olympic Games is the lighting of the Olympic torch in Greece and the subsequent relay that ends in the host city. The torch of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games will be seen by the public and carried by 1,200 torchbearers from February 2 to February 4.

As always, the Olympic torch was first lit in Greece on October 18, at the site of Ancient Olympia. The torch was later awarded by the Hellenic Olympic Committee symbolizing the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens.


Greek cross-country and biathlete Paraskevi Ladopoulou lights a cauldron during the handover ceremony of the Olympic Flame for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games at Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, Greece, October 19 year 2021.

To represent China, this year’s flame was transported across the ocean to China in a traditional Chinese lamp called Changxin.


The Olympic Flame is seen during the Flame Exhibit Journey of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games at Beijing Expo Park on December 29, 2021 in Beijing, China.

While there, the flame was used by the president of the Beijing Olympic Games, Cai Qi, to light the Olympic cauldron.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the torch’s flight path will be restricted, while also reducing the chances of seeing the flame.

The Olympic torch will be displayed throughout the event areas, including multiple areas in the host city Beijing and also Zhangjiakou in neighboring Hebei province. The torch will also be carried to other places in China that have a strong history of winter sports.
