    The relay torch and the Olympic flame are supposed to burn during the whole event. In case the flame goes out, it can only be reignited with a backup flame, which has been lit in Greece as well, and with never a regular lighter!

    The five rings of the Olympic symbol – designed by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, co-founder of the modern Olympic Games – represent the five inhabited continents of the world.

    The six colors – blue, yellow, black, green, red, and the white background – were chosen because every nation’s flag contains at least one of them.

    They were held every four years for 12 centuries. Then, in the 4th century A.D., all pagan festivals were banned by Emperor Theodosius I and the Olympics were no more.

    From 1912-1948, artists participated in the Olympics: Painters, sculptors, architects, writers, and musicians competed for medals in their respective fields.

    The Olympic torch is lit the old-fashioned way in an ancient ceremony at the temple of Hera, in Greece: Actresses, wearing costumes of Greek priestesses, use a parabolic mirror and sun rays to kindle the torch. From there, the torch starts its relay to the host city: It is usually carried by runners, but it has traveled on a boat, on an airplane (and the Concorde), on horseback, on the back of a camel, via radio signal, underwater, and in a canoe.

    When you have two Olympic gold medals and one bronze under your belt, it might be tempting to hang up the running shoes and spend the rest of your life basking in Olympic glory. But DeeDee Trotter, an American athlete with relay and 400m medals from the 2004 and 2012 Olympics, has always thrived on defying expectations. Following retirement from professional sports, she’s become a motivational speaker, a brand ambassador and an EF Olympic Ambassador (more on EF’s role in the Olympics here), and is now sharing her remarkable story of perseverance and hard work with the world.

    While there were trained women athletes in Ancient Greece, only men could participate in the Olympics.
