Torch run

Flame of Hope

We at  2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games are very honoured and pleased to be able to bring the one and only Olympic Flame to Belgium. While the 1920 Olympic Games were held in Antwerp, there was no Flame present at the time. The Flame did shortly visit our country in 2004, during the Torch Run for the Olympic Games in Athens that year.

This year however, the Flame arrived in Belgium on September 9th and did a 450km Torch Run through the entire country, during 5 days. This was a unique opportunity for a lot of Belgians to meet the Olympic Flame.
