Friday Photo: Olympic rings on the Thames

Rob Powell Events

IT's two years today since the Olympic rings for London 2012 arrived on the Thames.

The iconic rings were towed by STEVEN B past London locations such as the Tower of London, the Old Royal Naval College and the Thames Barrier.

The stunt was timed to mark the 150-days-to-go point as anticipation grew for the London Olympics. Here are some photos I took that day.

A small crowd gathered and horses from the King's Troop RHA were present in the ORNC grounds.

The rings went through the Thames Barrier with barrier workers out on the piers to watch the occasion.

After I posted one of these photos on Twitter, others shared their London 2012 memories from the river.
