Paris is going whole hog in its effort to nab the 2012 Summer Olympics. A logo for the event has popped up all over the city, from the National Assembly building to the Big Metal Tower.
The plan would involve a lot of existing venues (such as the Stade de France, pictured here, which would be rechristened Olympic Statium) plus the construction of numerous others.
The Stade de France is huge, and hosts a variety of events, from Rugby to concerts. See the web site for some upcoming events.
I hope the recent "NON!" vote on the EU Constitution hasn't dimmed the city's chances.
They stuck a large Paris Olympics 2012 on this big metal tower. I guessed they hoped that a few people would notice it as they passed by.
The Olympic Games were held in Paris in 1924.
Tarzan won some swimming medals (see the web site for more info on that).
