The Olympic Torch has begun its journey this morning with live coverage on The Olympic Channel if you want to get a sense of how Japan is preparing to host the Games.

For today’s Daily Video we have dived into the archives to bring you coverage from each of the Olympic Flame lighting ceremonies marking the start of the Games from Athens in 1896 up to Rio in 2016.

Memories of arrows in Atlanta and Mohammed Ali, as well as a few recognisable faces along the way.


The Olympic Federation and Indeed are among more than 250+ members of the Sport for Business network of sporting and business organisations working together across a number of key areas.
