A GIANT shot put could be placed in the Old Royal Naval College this summer to mark the London 2012 Olympics.
The 3m sculpture would sit upon an "impact crater debris" plinth in front of the entrance to Discover Greenwich.
Planning permission for the public art has been applied for by Di Henry, the GLA Events and Cultural Campaigns Manager.
The huge shot put, also just known as the shot, would be there from July 1st until September 30th and would be "in honour of the Olympics," says the planning application.
The shot put would be part of a series of large sporting monuments titled "Gift of the Gods". Other items to be placed across the capital include a 7m long javelin, a set of 3m long Union flag arrows and a 3m discus.
Update: 7th June 2012 - The sculpture's planning application was approved by the council.
