Olympic torch relay to Sochi

In this photo made Friday, Oct. 25, 2013 and provided by Olympictorch2014.com, Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014, mountain climber Karina Mezova, front, and Abdul-Khalim Elmezov, head of Kabardino-Balkaria climbing federation, head to light the Olympic flame on the summit of Mt. Elbrus during the Olympic torch relay in Kabardino-Balkaria province, southern Russia. The special project to take the flame to the western peak of Elbrus, the highest point in Europe, was planned separately from the main Olympic Torch Relay route in order to ensure the best possible weather conditions for the climb and was made at the end of October 2013. 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. (AP Photo/ Konstantin Dikovsky, Olympictorch2014.com)
