Paris Prepares For Olympics

1 week ago The Paris Olympics organizers have unveiled a display of the five Olympic rings mounted on the Eiffel Tower as the French capital marks 50 days until the start of the Summer Games. The structure of rings, made of recycled French steel, was displayed on Friday on the south side of the 135-year-old landmark in central Paris, overlooking the Seine River. The hugely popular tower in central Paris has seen soaring visitor numbers in the leadup to the Games. The tower is nicknamed La Dame de Fer — The Iron Lady — and will feature prominently in the July Paris Games and the following Paralympics.
