The Secret Ley Lines Of The Olympic Gold Medal

Has anyone else noticed that the newly revealed Olympic gold medal appears to be covered in mysterious lines and geometric patterns? Having grown up on a diet of Alan Moore and (early) Iain Sinclair, we could only jump to the conclusion that the winning design contains a hidden map of Olympic ley lines – routes of energy connecting important locations.

The medal features a prominent representation of the River Thames. Lining this up with its counterpart on a Google map allows us to deduce where the corners of the triangle and square patterns fall. Note, the alignment is approximate, and what follows is open to a certain amount of wiggle room.

There’s clearly something going on with the triangle. Look, the top vertex sits pretty much on top of the Olympic stadium. The bottom-right corner, meanwhile, is very close to the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, where shooting events will take place. The final corner is harder to descry. It’s South of the Old Kent Road, in the Queen’s Road area. Perhaps a nod to the monarch in her jubilee year? The centre of the triangle falls close to the O2, which will host several events under its temporary guise as the North Greenwich Arena.

The medal design also contains a mysterious box. Artist David Watkins describes this as ‘an almost metaphysical square’. But what does it signify? A sensible reading would suggest that its boundaries enclose most of the London-based Olympic venues, including the main park, Greenwich, Excel and the O2. But, given his comment, is there more to it?

The top-left corner falls on Meath Gardens, south of Roman Road. Top right is Upton Park, home of West Ham who will move into the Olympic stadium after the Games. Bottom right is positioned on Shooters Hill. And bottom-left is down in Peckham. Hmm, we can’t think of any Olympic connections with most of these, but let us know if you can find a link. A Masonic handshake for the best suggestion.

    And of course there’s the definite pyramid shape in the background. I’m thinking freemasons, eye of providence, dollar bills and such.

    With some resizing and rotating you should be able to come up with some better landmarks than that!

      Yeah, but it can’t be rotated because it’s all based on the rivers lining up.

    Peckham eh? It’s obviously a nod to the early ’90s sitcom Desmond’s.

    Shooters Hill could be the usual start of the London Marathon (though not the Olympic course).

    Might some of those lines converge on previous Olympic venues, Wembley, Crystal Palace, Herne Hill Velodrome?

  • Jcfloor5

    illuminati, this olympics something big is going to happen and the whole world will be watching.. these lines have significant religious importance and theyre using them for a reason..

  • R.M.Sinmone

    yup..i am on it…and this is about an interesting lay out for sure….will check back here…namaste..

      Please check out the letters. Rearranged they spell ZION Also on YouTube this medal has many demonic symbols…

         pure paranoia!

    My home town of Crieff, Perthhire, has been built on an obvious Masonic symbol. See http://www.ley-man.co.uk. Click on picture.

     The major leys through the olympic village and stadium are not on this medal.
    My theory is that its a designer’s attempt to suggest something that isn’t really there.
    Or to disract attention from what is. Chris street author of London’s Ley Lines.

    On Google Earth, you can draw a line from the precise middle of the olympic stadium to the centre of the stone circle at Castlerigg in Cumbria. One massively interesting feature along this line is Cornholme, just south of Burnley, Lancashire. There you can find a really bizarre woodlands called Cock Hill Wood (I would suggest to anyone to search this place and read up on it, you will be shocked). On Google Earth, the woodlands is comprised of a number of equalatrial triangles inside a larger equalatrial triangle with an exact north/south heading, with an approximate diameter of 0.77 miles. The line you draw from the stadium to Castlerigg exactly corresponds to the internal walls of the triangle structure in Burnley! Coincidence, I think not!

    Interesting article about Cornholme also known as UFO valley.

    I was checking Ley Lines on wikipedia before finding this site. The ley lines image used as an example on the wikipedia article 
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ley_line looks very similar to the ley lines on the back of the medal. I wonder, as above, if the ley lines are for all of England, rather than that of London. That is, the Thames may be a red herring – look wider afield.

    • Christreet

      the example on wiki is a random collection of meaningless lines, not a actual example of leys. this medal design is the same. i can’t believe how much bollocks is talked about these things. chris street, author of the book – London’s Ley Lines.

  • Chris street

     The aerial maps in multi map (or any others I found) don’t show any sign of regular equilateral triangles in cock hill wood. can’t comment on the castlerigg connection. haven’t looked. If these claims are real, post pics/links somewhere

    • Asta

       Actually the line in question runs from at least the Arc de Triomphe in Paris to the Castlerigg stone circle and it has in alignment the Stad de l’Olymipique in Paris, The Olympic Stadium in London, the triangular thing in the landscape to the left of Cornholme/Lydgate near Burnley, Burnley Football Club, Pendle Hill and onto Castlerigg. The most interesting find was the first street names this line crosses as it first hits Burnley. if you roll back the imagery date to 10 years previous and lose the newly built estate, the first streets it crosses through the middle are Athletic St and Olympia St, both over 100 years old! It exits north of Burnley via Cameron St and Livingston Mill, also 100 years old plus! You can replicate this easily yourself on Google Earth, not maps by using the ruler tool and zooming into the Arc de triomphe and starting in the middle of it and the placing the end point in the centre of the castlerigg stone circle and saving the line measure. Very interesting scanning back over it……
