LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (WCAX) – The torch for the Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games is back in the U.S. after a North Country delegation toured with it overseas.

The games kick off in January. Recently, a delegation from the Adirondack Sports Council flew to Italy to collect the symbolic flame. Thursday, it’s in New York City and it will make numerous ceremonial stops around the state before a carbon-free lighting of the Lake Placid FISU Games Opening Ceremony cauldron.

The 22-inch-long torch was created and built by Adirondack Studios.
