Montréal 1976 Olympic Cauldron

©IOC Olympic Museum Collection

Sandra Henderson of Toronto and Stéphane Préfontaine of Montréal — both fifteen years old – light the Olympic Cauldron during the 1976 Opening Ceremonies.

Carrying on the style established by the graphic design program, Montréal’s Olympic cauldron was paired down and elegant – emphasizing the Flame itself. What you can’t see in this image is that Henderson and Préfontaine were standing on a large platform in order to reach the cauldron, which was about 6m (20 feet) tall.
