Olympia and the Olympics

Today, the Olympic torch for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro will be lit by the High Priesstess using the reflection of the sunlight in a concave mirror in Olympia, where the Olympic Games took place in classical times.

I did not have the chance to assist to this ceremony in Olympia but I was lucky enough to go to visit the site and to get tickets for the Olympics in London (I’m a huge fan of sports). Take a look at the pictures!
