TOKIO 2020

Relevo de la Antorcha Olímpica animación en video

By Ben Mullins

March 25, 2021 - July 23, 2021 - Luego de haberse pospuesto debido a la pandemia de Covid-19, el recorrido de la llama olímpica, retenido en Tokio durante un año, por fin saldrá en manos de miles de portadores para pasar por todas las 47 prefecturas de Japón en un prolongado Relevo de Antorcha Olímpica de 121 días.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Torch Relay will run from March 25-July 23, 2021 – following a 12-month delay caused by the global coronavirus pandemic.

During its travels the torch will visit all 47 prefecture capitals, plus hundreds of towns and villages along the way – giving people from all walks of life a chance to share in the celebration.

The Olympic torch was designed by Tokujin Yoshioka and is inspired by traditional cherry blossoms. Five petal-shaped columns surround the tip of a rose gold aluminium beacon, which produces five separate flames.

Around 30% of the aluminium metal used in the torch's construction is recycled from emergency prefabricated housing units built in the aftermath of the devastating 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.
