The Home of The Torch Relay Lamp

Protector's Torch Relay Lamps carried the Olympic Flame to Sochi 2014.

The idea of transferring the Olympic Flame by flame safety lamp came from the 1956 Melbourne Games.

A group of German Miners donated their lamps in order for the flame to be transported by aircraft.

Protector's Torch Relay Lamp has been involved in flame transfer for the Sydney Games in 2000,

Athens 2004, Torino 2006, Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010, London 2012, London Paralympics 2012

and Sochi 2014
