What's drawing Olympic tourists to the beach in Pyeongchang?

PYEONGCHANG, SOUTH KOREA (WFIE) - Gyeongpo Beach is the place to be during this year's Winter Olympics.

The sandbank formed between Gyeongpo Lake and the ocean is a well-known tourist attraction, especially right now.

One can find the 2018 Fine Arts Festival along the beach, which consists of an assortment of sculptures and artworks that share the culture of South Korea.

One of the popular sculptures, that proves to be a fan-favorite, is the Olympic rings placed at the entrance of the beach.

Attracting a constant line of tourists who want pictures and memories with the sculpture, the Olympic rings are nothing new. Created as a symbolic way to express the activity of the Olympic Movement and represent the union of athletes from the five continents at the Olympic Games, the symbol has been around since making its debut at the VII Olympiad Antwerp in 1920.

The Olympic symbol consists of five interlaced rings of equal dimensions, each one in a different color.

Friday, there are seven official versions of the Olympic rings.

Although the Olympic rings at Gyeongpo Beach are just one of the many sets of rings at this year's Winter Olympics, this sculpture seems to be getting the most attention.
