Track the Olimpic Torch Relay in Google Earth

Everyone knows that this year we will see one more edition of the Olympic Games, wich will happen in Beijing – China. But allmost people don’t know that Google created a way to you to follow the traditional Torch Relay.

“An ongoing tradition from 766 B.C. has been to ignite the torch at the ancient site in Olympia, Greece. From March 24th until the start of August, the Torch Relay will travel across Greece, into Beijing, and then around the world through cities, oceans, and even the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Qomolangma (Mt. Everest). The relay’s purpose is to spread the Olympic spirit as well as the message of peace and friendship, and also ignite the passion of the people around the world.”

You can follow the Torch Relay in http://maps.google.com/help/maps/torchrelay/ , but unfortunately the Torch will not pass through Brazil this time.
