Olympic torch takes a dive in Russia's Lake Baikal

Olympic torch bearers, TV anchorwoman Yekaterina Andreyeva (R), and Alexander Vronsky, hold Olympic torches in the world's biggest lake, Baikal, during the Olympic torch relay in Siberia, Russia. The Olympic torch has plunged into Russia's Lake Baikal in the run-up to the Sochi Winter Games. The 65,000-kilometer (39,000 mile) Sochi torch relay, which started on Oct. 7, is the longest in Olympic history. The torch has traveled to the North Pole on a Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker and has even been flown into space. Source: AP Photo / Olympictorch2014.com
