Torch on reserve.
Not many people know that from the Olympic flame, special lamps are lit, designed to preserve the flame in case the main torch (or even the flame at the Games themselves) is extinguished for one reason or another.
This caution is for a reason — in 1976 during the Summer Olympic Games in Montreal, the Olympic flame was extinguished due to a long downpour.
