(12:17am) This is the entrance of the Olympic Flame into the Olympic Stadium and the Lighting of the Cauldron by Muhammad Ali hosted by Bob Costas & Dick Enberg to the music of Beetoven's "Ode to Joy". Athletes hand-off include:
Al Oerter, Evander Holyfield, Voula Patoulidou, & Janet Evans. Others include Shaquille O'Neal & Michael Johnson. July 20th, 1996 Atlanta, Georgia USA

I recommend viewing Janet Evans' video speech under her website on being a champion where she talks about this moment.
Click on "Speaking" then "Video Preview" at lower right of page.
