LONDON, May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
REACT were again given the opportunity to provide Motorola equipment for Thomson Reuters Field Specialist team to photograph and upload in real time the lighting of the Olympic Torch.
The Olympic torch will be lit in a ceremony in Ancient Olympia on Thursday, ahead of the London Games. After a short relay around Greece, it will be flown to Britain on May 18 and carried by a succession of torchbearers through 1,019 communities before it is used to light the cauldron at the London opening ceremony on July 27.
HISTORY OF THE FLAME: * Flame races were run in ancient Athens to honour deities including Prometheus, who, legend has it, stole fire from the gods and brought wisdom and knowledge to humankind. * A fire was kept burning at ancient Olympics to honour Zeus, the supreme ruler in the Greek pantheon. * Fire first reappeared at the modern Olympics in Amsterdam in 1928, when a flame was built into an Olympic stadium tower. It was seen as a symbolic link between the old and new Games.
Jess Thompson-Hughes Managing Director of REACT commented, "we are proud to supply best of breed Wireless Technology for this prestigious event and look forward to working with Thomson Reuters on future projects.
