Torch of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games

Olympia: Greek actress Xanthi Georgiou, the High Priestess, lights the torch of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, held by reek shooting Olympic champion Anna Korakaki, left, the first torchbearer, during the dress rehearsal of the flame lighting ceremony at the closed Ancient Olympia site, birthplace of the ancient Olympics in southern Greece, Wednesday, March 11, 2020. Greek Olympic officials are holding a pared-down flame-lighting ceremony for the Tokyo Games due to concerns over the spread of the coronavirus. Both Wednesday’s dress rehearsal and Thursday’s lighting ceremony will be closed to the public, while organizers have slashed the number of officials from the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo Organizing Committee, as well as journalists at the flame-lighting.
