The 1972 Munich Olympics were only the third Games to be held in the country, and most notably, the first time since the 1936 Olympic Games. This torch hails from this very tragic Summer Games, the scene of Mark Spitz's record-breaking seven gold medals as well as the unfortunate massacre of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. The nickel chromium torch is engraved "München 1972" with the interlocking Olympic rings logo, plus "Spiele der XX Olympiade" on the handle. The round platform at the base of the combustion tube bears the emblem of the Games, representing a crown of rays of light. The knob of the handle is engraved "KRUPP" with three interlocking rings. The torch is 28" long (71 cm) with the round platform having a diameter of 8" (20 cm). This torch shows evidence of light use from the flame relay and comes in NM condition overall.
