Torch relay Athens 2004
The Olympic flame did a world tour in 2004, visiting all countries that had organised the Games. Each country selected a number of bearers (nationally well-known people). Clemens, proud and aware of the fact that this was a very special moment, bears the Olympic torch in the heart of Amsterdam’s city center.
