OLYMPIC RINGS TO MAKE A PERMANENT HOME IN THE REGION
ST. LOUIS – Feb. 5, 2018 – The St. Louis Sports Commission unveiled its plans today to raise the profile and impact of its region’s involvement in the Olympic Movement. Led by its Olympic Legacy Committee, the privately-funded nonprofit organization is embarking on a multi-phase effort to enhance the community’s engagement in Olympism. Its goal is to inspire awareness and pride in St. Louis’ Olympic affiliation, and to positively impact St. Louis through its opportunities as an Olympic city.
The project has the approval of the International Olympic Committee, which, in a major step, is granting the Sports Commission’s Olympic Legacy Committee permission to display the Olympic rings – one of the most iconic symbols in the world – at the venues where the 1904 Summer Games took place. Because the 1904 Olympics predated the existence of the rings, St. Louis previously did not have the ability to use the symbol.
