Foxton Locks Used In Publicity For 2012 Olympics!!
A striking image taken at Foxton Locks is being used in a publicity campaign for the 2012 Olympics.
The photo, featuring British Artistic gymnast Becky Downie balancing on one of the locks, is to go up at various locations across the East Midlands.
Already it’s gone on display in the baggage re-claim area at East Midlands Airport, as part of a series of images taken across the region depicting athletes at famous venues.
The East Midlands Development Agency came up with the idea as a way of promoting the area as well as the London Olympics.
It’s hoped the move will lead to a few extra people visiting the locks too!
