Missed The Olympic Torch Relay? Now You Can Own Your Own

The Classic Edition of the Beijing Olympic Torch (Image courtesy Beijing 2008 Olympic Store)
By Andrew Liszewski

Hi. My name is Andrew, and I’m addicted to the Olympics. Normally I couldn’t care less about sports, save for a few hours spent watching the Superbowl every year, but there’s just something about the Olympics that has me glued to the TV ’til the wee hours of the morning. And if you’re just as big a fan and would like to pick up a souvenir that’s a bit more substantial than a t-shirt, you can now order a limited edition replica of the official Beijing Olympic torch.

The torch replica is 29cm tall which represents the 29th modern Olympic Games, and is approved and licensed by the IOC. It’s made from actual steel left over from the ‘Bird’s Nest’ National Stadium, and the crystal display base features a laser-etched map showing the route the torch took all over the world. The replicas are limited to just 200,000 sets and are available from the official Beijing 2008 Olympics online store for $500.

    It would be cool if it were a cigarette lighter too – I’d buy that

    I am the same way. I don’t watch sports (except for the super bowl) and I love the Olympics. I cant turn the tv off when they are on.
