Illinoisan built 1984 Olympic torch
DeKALB – Not many people can say they have built an item that is an internationally recognized symbol of sports. Abed Zantout can.
When he was a product engineer for the now-defunct Sycamore-based Turner Industries, Zantout was one of two engineers who designed and built the Olympic torch for the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
Zantout gave a presentation July 25 at the Sycamore History Museum. During his presentation, he showed pictures of his journey with the Olympic torch, as well as Olympic memorabilia from the area.
