Turin torch too heavy The Olympic torch for the Turin games was designed by Italy's top engineers and was hailed as a masterpiece of design and technology - lucky for the engineers, they don't have to run with it. Those that have been given the honour of carrying the most potent of Olympic symbols say the aluminium torch is too heavy and is a danger to their wellbeing. The ski-inspired torch weighs in at nearly 2kg, the heaviest design since the Innsbruck games in 1964. Many torchbearers have had to constantly switch the flame from hand to hand and are struggling to keep it aloft as it is brought on an eight-week relay run across Italy. Some have to hold the flame at chest or waist level after jogging only a short distance, and they complain their moment of glory was spoiled by the fear the flame might set their hair or clothes alight. Fifa to change over-age rule From Beijing on, Olympic soccer is going to be strictly for players under 23 years of age. Fifa have decided Olympic football teams will no longer be allowed to field three over-age players, which had been the case since 1996. Some countries have not been sending over-age players to the Olympics and there has been pressure on Fifa in recent years to change the rule. Spielberg's peace prayer Celebrated director Steven Spielberg has tackled the Olympic's darkest hour in his new movie 'Munich' which is due to be released later this month. A wall of secrecy surrounded the film, Spielberg's first to touch on the Arab-Israeli conflict. During the 1972 Olympics, 11 Israeli athletes were killed in a hostage crisis after they were abducted by members of the Palestinian terrorist group, Black September. The movie follows a squad of Mossad agents as they subsequently track down and assassinate the terrorists. Spielberg calls the movie 'a prayer for peace'.
