Starting in #Greece, we follow the unique Firebird (based on Russian fairytales) #Sochi2014 Olympic Torch across #Russia and into Space via a behind the scene look, courtesy #RussiaToday (RT). With the Sochi Winter Olympic games beginning in less than a month, RT revisits the record Olympic torch relay, the longest in Olympic history. The flame has passed through every one of Russia’s 83 regions and by the end will have been carried by 14,000 torch bearers.

Among many other places, the iconic torch visited Red Square, went deep underground into the diamond mines of the Northern #Siberia’s #Yakutia region, took a ride on a reindeer sleigh, went to the majestic Far Eastern peninsula of #Kamchatka and burned underwater in the depths of Lake #Baikal; it even was delivered to the North Pole and took a space walk outside the #ISS in Outer Space! Get the inside story from James Brown, RT’s very own torch bearer.
