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.
