GENICHESK. TAVRIA. France24 reports that the Olympic flame has been lit in Greece, the ancient home of the Olympic Games, kicking off a three-month relay of the flame. It will next be taken to France.

The ceremony of lighting the flame was solemn and took place in Greece, where the culture of the Olympic Games originated. Ancient competitions were held in Olympia, a place the Greeks considered sacred. In Ancient Greece they managed to hold 292 Olympiads from 776 BC to 393 AD.

Further French public figure Pierre de Coubertin revived the Olympic Games at the end of XIX century. Since 1896 only summer games were held. Then in 1924 they started to hold the Winter Olympics. France hosted the Olympics in 1900 and 1924, so the Summer Games 2024 will be especially symbolic for the French.

On July 26, the opening ceremony will take place, where the Olympic flame will be delivered from Greece. The flame will travel a journey of 17,000 kilometers and will be delivered on the ship Belem, which was first launched just a few weeks after the 1896 Games.

However, we have previously reported on the challenges Paris faces in preparing for the Olympics. One of them is the security issue. It has been reported that the opening ceremony is due to take place on the River Seine, but may be moved due to security threats to the national stadium.
