The News
LONDON: The latest set of giant Olympic rings to celebrate the approaching London Games will be unveiled at Birmingham Airport on Tuesday — the first British airport to be decorated with the iconic symbol.
The rings will sit either side of the airport’s new control tower and will be visible to passengers on approaching planes and also car drivers on the busy Birmingham to Coventry road.
Birmingham will host the Jamaican and United States track and field teams prior to the Games. Coventry’s football stadium will kickoff the action at the Olympics with the first match in the football tournament which begins before the opening ceremony.
