Weymouth and Portland’s Olympic Rings were officially unveiled on 20 June 2012.
The Rings have been carved by local stonemasons using world-renowned Portland limestone. The Rings stand 2.5 metres tall, 1 metre deep, 3.8 metres long.
The Rings will provide an iconic and locally distinctive welcome for visitors coming to Weymouth for the London 2012 Olympic Games sailing events. After the Games, it is planned that the Rings will be moved to Portland.
The Olympic Rings sculpture is made up of 10 separate stones and took local masons a total of 190 hours to complete from cutting the templates to fixing the Rings together.
