Based on the same basic pedestal form, Calgary’s Olympic cauldron was significantly larger than Montréal’s, but arguably lacked the same elegance. Twelve-year-old torchbearer, Robyn Perry lit the cauldron as it was slowly raised out of a platform in MacMahon Stadium. Apparently, there were no problems with the hydraulics back in 88.
