Giant Olympic Rings in River Thames London

February 29, 2012
A barge carrying a magnificent set of giant Olympic rings was launched on the London river to mark 150 days until the start of the Games.Measuring 11 metres (36ft) high and 25 metres (82ft) wide, the glowing display sailed regally through the city centre on a barge pulled along by a tugboat.

Mr Boris Johnson the Mayor of London, said “2012 is one of the most thrilling years in our city’s history and as we welcome the world, we have an unprecedented opportunity to showcase and strengthen London’s outstanding culture and creativity, which are a hugely important part of our economy.From museums to theatre, and music to design, we have a reputation that is second to none and London’s finest artists and organisations are producing an exceptional range of brand new cultural events that will add to the excitement of hosting the Games”.
