The Press release (PDF - 35 Ko)
President of Paris 2012 and Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoë today inaugurated the Olympic Landmark and the Paris 2012 Exhibition on the site where the Olympic Village will be built if Paris is selected to host the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Landmark comprises a 75-meter metal pole decorated with ten inflatable rings. Each ring has a diameter of ten meters and is two meters thick. The five balloons at the top represent the five Olympic rings. Lighted from the inside, it can be seen during the day and at night from a distance of about ten kilometers.

Located next to the Olympic Landmark, the Paris 2012 Exhibition is an interactive and educational exploration of the Paris 2012 bid project.

The inauguration was also attended by Jean-François Lamour, Minister for Youth, Sports and Associations; Henri Sérandour, President of the French National Olympic and Sports Committee; Guy Drut, IOC member; Francis Mayer, General Manager of the Caisse des Dépôts; and Philippe Baudillon, the Chief Executive Officer of Paris 2012.
