Olympic Games: The Flame Embarks on the Ocean Relay


06.09.24

As the anticipation builds for the upcoming Olympic Games, a remarkable journey begins with the Olympic flame embarking on its ocean relay. This symbolic voyage, rich in tradition and significance, marks the flame’s passage across seas, carrying the spirit of the Games to the host city. The Olympic flame will set sail from Brest to embark on an incredible journey: the “Relay of the Oceans.” From June 7 to 17, it will traverse five overseas territories located in three of the five oceans on the globe: in French Guiana (June 9), then on the islands of Réunion (June 12), French Polynesia (June 13), Guadeloupe (June 15), and Martinique (June 17).

The Olympic flame’s ocean relay is more than a physical journey; it is a symbol of hope, unity, and the enduring legacy of the Olympic Games. As it travels across the waves, it carries with it the dreams and aspirations of athletes and the collective spirit of humanity, lighting the way to a celebration of global unity and sporting excellence.
