Lot 3091: Official 2000 Sydney Olympics torch, comprised of steel and aluminum, measuring 30.5? in length and 4? at its widest point, designed by Blue Sky Design and manufactured by G. A. & L. Harrington. The beautiful aesthetic of this torch drew inspiration from the Sydney Opera House, the blue of the Pacific Ocean, and the Australian boomerang. The emblem of the Sydney Olympics is featured prominently at the top of the torch. The Sydney Olympic Games were lauded as the best ever held and the torch relay was a massive undertaking, taking place over the course of four months and including a total of 13,400 torchbearers. An incredibly desirable torch from these important Olympic Games.
