Giant Olympic Rings Float Down Thames


Here's the scene at dawn this morning, as a giant enhooplement of Olympic Rings is towed downriver past HMS Belfast. The stunt marks 150 days to go until the Opening Ceremony.

The massive logo measures 11 metres high and 25 metres wide — about the same size as a pair of flattened New Buses For London (assuming a certain amount of vertical smear). You can view it on the river all day between Battersea and Canary Wharf, passing through Tower Bridge at 1.15 and 6.30pm (webcam). It will then be used as a backdrop to riverside events throughout the Mayor's Summer Like No Other of cultural events, which will tie in with the Games. More on those soon.

A spot of doughnutting on these rings would be one hell of a ride!

I was married in Tower Bridge and was told that the Bridge will get its own set of rings.
