Nike is the goddess of victory, and is often seen holding a torch, which also means victory. She is likely the whole reason why the Olympics are around, ignoring the fact that there is an "Olym" in the Olympics, meaning that the Olympians founded the Olympics. She holds a torch, and each of the winners got to hold the torch.
Nike is the ultimate game goddess, she is good at any sport at all and is rather competitive.
Some say that Nike has wings and flies up to the sky to light her torch.
Nike, the shoe brand, is named after her.
Nike's official Greek name is Νικη.
