The Ro Ring for 17th Place - London 2012

The P-ring - pronounced 'row.' Is an award that can only be worn by Olympians who finished 17th.

The first Olympian to get this sweet seventeenth ring is from Qatar - Bahya Mansour Al Hamad.

Fun learning fact

The Greek Letter 'Ro' looks like the Roman Letter 'P.' I good way of remembering to distinguish this mix up is to "remeber to row, row, row your boat because if you pee in it, it will sink. And imagine the letter 'P' looks more like an rowing oar than the letter 'R.'
