We lit the Olympic flame in 1994
7000 hands had carried the fire during the Olympic torch relay. 300 torches had been used and 8000 kilometers had been covered when Crown Prince Haakon ran up the final staircase with the torch, and fired up the Lillehammer Winter Olympic Games in 1994.

The torch from the Lillehammer Winter Olympic Games in 1994 was technically designed by us. The organizers came to us to find a solution for letting the torch burn safely and beautifully also under extreme conditions. The autumn of 1993 the kids around Fantoft saw this guy running around with a flame. They tought it was fun, and enjoyed the game and followed him. This was the testing of the torch for the 1994 OL.
