The Rings will be seen by hundreds of thousands passengers travelling by Eurostars to St. Pancras in London.
The set of rings measures 9.4 meters in width and 4.7 meters in height, transported in segments and placed by a team of rock climbers using two nights time.
It is hoped by the LOCOG that these Rings are to welcome visitors travelling from Europe at the first sight and to demonstrate that London is the best destination for the summer in 2012.
Jonathan Edwards, LOCOG Athletes Commission Chair, said, “It is a very powerful symbol of London being ready to welcome the world in 2012, and it is a great example of British and French cooperation.”
Jean-Pierre Mougin, General Secretary of French Olympic Committee, said, “That is very good news that today we celebrate the Olympic Rings at the entrance of the Euro tunnel, and it obviously is a big news, it is a good news also regarding the relationship between France and the UK, and we are very happy to be here today.”
With the year of 2012 now approaching, LOCOG said now they are in good shape and is confident in the coming year.
Edwards, who still holds the men’s triple jump world record, said, “Everything is coming very fast, there is so much to do, and we are working incredibly hard to make sure we are ready to host the fantastic event.”
