Publish date:2021-3-2   Pageview: 532


 

The 2018 Winter Games featured 102 events that saw the participation of over 2900 athletes from 92 countries.



The torch was exactly 700mm in length, representing the altitude of PyeongChang, which is 700 meters above sea level. The white and gold tones of the torch mirror the main colours of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games Torch Relay, while the five-pronged shape of the flame is based on the Korean symbol for PyeongChang, which was also engraved around the bottom half and top of the torch.


The five-angled shape in the middle of the uniform cap was meant to represent the spirit of sports, which connects races, nations, religions, genders, cultures, as well as the five continents, united by a common passion for the Games.
