Olympic Torch Display Opens

The Club hosts two stunning pieces of Olympic history.

Torches used to carry the Olympic flame during the 1964 and 2020 Summer Games are now on display at the B1 Family Entrance.

Loaned generously by Members Gudni Gudnason and Aurora Borealis Entertainment and Toru Abe, respectively, the fencing-inspired 1964 torch and the 2020 model, partially made from recycled temporary housing following 2011's Tohoku earthquake, offer a fascinating look into the history of the quadrennial sporting event.

The torches remain on display through September 5.
