Olympic flame begins journey to Buenos Aires


Young athletes hold the Argentinean and Olympic flags during the lighting ceremony for the flame that will travel to the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympics (October 1-6), at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens Tuesday. The ceremony was shorter than usual as a mark of respect for those who died in the wildfires near Athens. The Buenos Aires 2018 Organizing Committee expressed its solidarity with Greek authorities.
