    Greek figure skater Panagiotis Markouzios runs with an Olympic torch of the Sochi 2014 Winter Games to light an altar during a handover ceremony at the Panathenean stadium in Athens October 5, 2013. The flame that will burn at next year's Sochi Winter Olympics was handed over to Russia on Saturday in the marble stadium that hosted the first modern Games in 1896. After a six-day trek across 33 towns in Greece's mainly mountainous northern regions, the flame that was lit last Sunday by the sun's rays at the birthplace of the ancient Games in Olympia was presented to Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak.
