Boris Johnson, and his five Olympic rings of virtue, or whatever…
On Wednesday 27th June, re-elected London Mayor Boris Johnson unveiled the five Olympic rings over the side of London Bridge, with Olympics organiser Lord (Sebastian) Coe.
Lord Coe, fresh off the Olympic torch relay run, fast-tracked into London to commemorate the event with the Mayor.
“Look at those five rings. Baron Pierre de Coubertin said that they symbolised the five great Olympic virtues of athleticism, sportsmanship, exertion, poverty, chastity…or whatever. Well, roughly those ones.”
The chastity claim was the killer line that made all burst out with a right ‘ol chuckle. Thank you Mr.Mayor.
So, Great Britain, what do the five rings stand for? Leave us a comment explaining their meaning. Perhaps you could become the Lord of the Rings.
