A feature of the Norilsk relay race was that a flame with particles of non-ferrous and precious metals from the smelting furnace of the Nadezhda Metallurgical Plant was added to the torch. Fire from the furnace was taken with a torch specially made for this purpose. Then it will become one of the exhibits of the factory museum.

Let us remind you that the Universiade torch relay started in September in Turin, Italy. The torch was carried through the streets of Kazakh Alma-Ata and Chinese Harbin. In Russia, the fire of the Student Games has already visited 17 cities. From Norilsk he will be taken to the village of Tura in the central part of Evenkia, and his journey will end in Krasnoyarsk.
