    I don’t think you are suppose to relight it with a cigarette lighter. The tradition is that a lantern is lit by the sun in Greece, flown to the Olympic location and then the fist torch is lit with that lantern. If it goes out there is suppose to be a person with that lantern nearby to relight it. I am not the brightest person on the planet but I don’t think they had cigarette lighters 2,500 years ago. The Russians blow it yet again. Lets hope that it proves to be bad Karma and the games will have no snow and will be a total disaster.
