Largest Olympic rings unveiled in London...

For anyone flying to London for the Olympic Games, you may well notice a set of Olympic Rings mown into the grass in Richmond Park which lies under the flight path of Heathrow Airport.

London 2012 Organising Committee Chair Seb Coe said: 'The Olympic Rings are an iconic symbol, inspiring athletes and uniting people around the world. To athletes they represent the culmination of thousands of hours of training and reaching the highest level in sport. These Rings will excite and inspire visitors coming to London.’

I think Olympic visitors would be more interested getting through customs/immigration efficiently than seeing rings in the grass !
