Beijing Olympics: the Olympic flame again lit without spectators.

The Olympic flame will be lit in a desperately empty ancient stadium in Olympia on Monday for the Beijing Winter Games (February 4-20, 2022), as for those in Tokyo, due to the coronavirus pandemic. For the second time in a row in three decades, the traditional ceremony in the cradle of Olympism will be held in the absence of spectators, announced the Hellenic Olympic Committee. In the history of the Games in the modern era, the flame had only been lit behind closed doors in 1984, when Greek organizers wanted to protest against the commercial nature of the Olympic Games in Los Angeles. It must be lit Monday at 11:30 a.m. and handed over to the Chinese organizers the next day at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens at 12 p.m. after a night in the shade of the Acropolis.
