Olympic torch/picture

On Jan. 4, 2002, Fr. Hesburgh carried the Olympic Torch a fifth of a mile through Notre Dame’s campus (the Juniper Road stretch that used to run between the stadium and Joyce Arena) as part of its 13,500-mile route to Salt Lake City. Fr. Hesburgh jogged the route at age 84 in 18-degree weather. The torch was a favorite picture prop for students visiting the office.
