    Olympic and Paralympic Games have in the past largely overcome the many concerns that precede them, delivering thrills, memories and a party (the post-Games hangover and day of reckoning is part of the cycle too), and each day brings a reminder – some pleasant, some not so much – that it’s all drawing closer.

    On Wednesday, to mark the milestone day in the Games’ ancient Greece home, the Rio OC president was handed the Olympic torch.
