Torch bearers hold their torches during the Olympic torch relay in Gorno-Altaysk, 3,641 kilometers (2,262 miles) east of Moscow, on Dec. 2. The 65,000-kilometer (40,389-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
