Where have Van­cou­ver's big Olympic rings gone?

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

VAN­COU­VER (CP) — Un­der the in­ces­sant grey skies of Van­cou­ver, the in­ter­na­tional me­dia has had at least one glim­mer of light for pho­tos in the lead-up to the Games.

And now that’s been taken away, too. A mas­sive set of Olympic rings that lit up nightly atop a barge in the wa­ters of down­town Van­cou­ver mys­te­ri­ously dis­ap­peared Tues­day.

Van­cou­ver Po­lice say they know noth­ing about the miss­ing rings, once lo­cated in­side the Games’ marine se­cu­rity zone and out­side their ju­ris­dic­tion, adding with a chuckle that they’d be tough to steal and even more dif­fi­cult to pawn.

One ru­mour was that they’d been moved to act as the fi­nal caul­dron for the Olympic flame dur­ing next week’s open­ing cer­e­monies.

But Olympic or­ga­niz­ers say the rings have been taken away for a power re­fit­ting and should be glow­ing again in the next few days.
