TorchEdit

Two torch designs were short-listed in September 2009 for the 2010 Asian Games. "The Tide"(潮流) was chosen by the organisers as the torch of the Games, defeating the "Exploit" design.[2] The Tide weighs 98g and is 70 cm long, and is tall and straight in shape, while dynamic in terms of image. The secondary official mark of the torch relay was unveiled on July 15, 2010, featuring a silhouette of a running goat holding a torch.[3]

Lighting ceremonyEdit

On October 9, 2010, the flame lighting ceremony was held at the Juyongguan at the Great Wall of China in Beijing.[4] A 22-year-old Yunnan Arts University student Kang Chen-chen (康辰晨) was chosen to light the torch.[5][6] The condition at the time of the lighting was foggy, while she tried to light the torch with a solar mirror with little sunlight. Therefore, it took upwards of 2 minutes before the torch flame could come up.[7] Kang received quite a bit of media attention afterwards. Most of it praised the way she handled the situation.[8] The cauldron was then lit-up by president Hu Jintao.[9]
