Olympic Rings For Dorset

The National Sailing Academy in Dorset is getting a set of Olympic Rings to mark the success of London 2012.

Weymouth & Portland hosted the sailing events last year.

John Tweed, Chief Executive, WPNSA said:

“The Academy has entered a new phase in its evolution post Games, but as a 2012 venue the Olympics and Paralympics are still very much part of this sporting facility’s DNA.  It has been a long term vision of ours to ensure an onsite legacy at Weymouth and Portland.  The world renowned rings offer such a strong visual representation of the Games, they will bring back wonderful memories from the summer of sport to both the local community and visitors”.

It's hoped the iconic Olympic rings, the Paralympic Games Agitos symbol and a specially carved commemorative Portland stone will be in place by the Autumn.

The stone, quarried from the Isle of Portland, has been used extensively within buildings across the British Isles, the beautiful grey-white limestone having been used most famously in the construction of St Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace.
