In celebrating the Sydney Olypmic Games 2000, "Flexilight-the imaginative rope light system" played an import role by lighting up the Sydney 2000 Olypmic Rings Logo, and marking, the opening and the closing of the Games on the international Icon of Australia, the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The Olypmic Rings Logo was made of 5.5 kilometers of Square Box Truss RHS Steel, welded to from each ring. The ring's overall diameter was 24 meters with an internal diameter of 20 meter each. The overall size of the structure is 78m (L) x 38m(H) and weighted of 33 tons. The structure was attached to the Bridge supported by 54 lengths of 16mm diameter steel wire rope cables and the aid of various rigging fixing materials.

Our Chasing Flexilight was chosen for this project, in a static configuration to show the brightness of the Olypmic Games. Each ring had 20 rows, supported by 16mm steel, rod and tied down by cable ties. A total of 1,700m of Flexilight per ring, and a total of 8,500m for the entire structure, and some 95,000 thousand cable ties were used. This immense pioneering work took 5,700 hours to complete.
