The Olympic torch is scheduled to be lit today in Greece, beginning the countdown to the next Winter Games.

奥运火炬定于今日在希腊点燃,开启下一届冬季奥运会的倒数。

The flame will travel more than 5,000 miles east to South Korea, arriving Nov. 1 — 100 days before the 2018 Olympics begin.

这一火焰将向东传递5000英里(约合8000公里)到韩国,于11月1日——2018年奥运会开始前100天——抵达目的地。

Starting in the city of Incheon, the torch will cross South Korea, with stops in nine provinces and eight major cities before arriving in Pyeongchang for the opening ceremony on Feb. 9.

从仁川开始,火炬将穿越韩国,途经9个道、8座大城市,然后抵达平昌郡,参加2月9日的开幕式。

The torch lighting goes back to the ancient games, but the Olympic flame made its first modern appearance at the 1928 Games in Amsterdam. The relay began with the 1936 Games in Berlin.

点燃火炬的仪式可追溯至远古奥运会,但奥运火炬是在1928年阿姆斯特丹奥运会上首次进行现代亮相的。火炬传递则是从1936年的柏林奥运会开始。

The torch itself is designed by the host country. The Times noted in 2010: “The modern Olympic Games have become as much a global contest among designers and architects as among athletes. Each Olympics is expected to produce a logo, a signature building — and a characteristic torch that symbolizes local tradition and national character.”

火炬由主办国设计。时报于2010年注意到:“现代奥运会在设计师和建筑师中也变成了对运动员来说一样的全球性竞争。每届奥运会都被赋予了能产生一个标识的期望,一幢标志性的建筑——还有一个具有特色的火炬,能象征当地传统和国家特色。”

The torch for the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul featured a bright metal body and Korean graphic elements. The five-pronged shape of the 2018 torch represents the Korean symbol for Pyeongchang.

1988年首尔夏季奥运会的火炬主体为亮色金属,带有韩国的图形元素。2018年火炬五分叉的外形代表着平昌郡在韩国的象征。
