What does it mean?



I found this fascinating picture here. It is located above a link to the Christian Science Monitor's daily photographic coverage of the Olympics.

What do the elements of this striking graphic represent?

Three rings for elven kings under the sky,
Five for the IOC lords in their stadia of concrete . . .

Who holds the One?

Sorry ... but, it makes me think of the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Not bad uu4077,
It is indeed a group of victorious German olympians in leather boots. The fuchsia podium and gold rings also adds a touch of "Cabaret" (Hat band in Mein Herr and dress in the song Cabaret) to complete the 1930's feel.
