Swimmer and motivational speaker Mark Foster has unveiled Giant Olympic Rings at Heathrow Airport. Measuring 12 metres wide, the Rings have been installed in Terminal 5 international arrivals at Heathrow, which is the official host airport of the London 2012 Games.
The aim is that at least 2million passengers will see the Rings over the course of the summer.
“I know first-hand the nervous excitement that every athlete feels when they arrive for the Olympic Games,” said Mark.
“The atmosphere is electric and often the airport is the first time we see fans and really feel the special buzz of the weeks to come.
“The Rings will create a huge sense of excitement and be a great part of the welcome for everyone travelling though the terminal.”
Paul Deighton, chief executive of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), said:“As we welcome the world these Rings will excite and inspire visitors arriving at Heathrow.”
