Olympic cauldron was lit at the Maracana Stadium on Aug. 5, 2016. One of torch bearers on this the final day was Brazilian Plastic Surgeon, Ivo Pitanguy. Dr. Pitanguy was as much a national symbol of Brazil’s excellence in Plastic Surgery as he was a hero for his care of many of the victims of the The Niterói Circus Fire. , 70% of the approximately 3000 in the audience were children. He credits this experience with teaching him that for many, physical appearance was critical to living. The day after helping light the Olympic Torch, his own light extinguished. At the age of 93, he suffered a fatal heart attack at his home in Rio de Janeiro.
