Best Olympic Flame Lighting Method

I saw handful of Olympic Flame Lighting Ceremonies during my time but the one that really sticks out was the one during the 92 Olympics in Barcelona.

Most Olympic Lighting Ceremonies just show the runner running up to the stage then lighting the Olympic Flame, but the 92 Olympics had an archer, lighting up an arrow from the Olympic Torch then shooting the arrow with a bow towards the pedestal of the Olympic Flame Cauldron, lighting it.

Antonio Rebollo was the one responsible for that amazing shot. You can click this link to jump directly to the segment in the video to where the arrow was fired.
