An oar-some Olympic maize maze
12:00pm Wednesday 8th August 2012 in Abingdon
A MAZE depicting two of Team GB’s incredible gold-winning rowers is emerging at a field in Abingdon.
Millets Farm is claiming to have predicted Great Britain’s medal success at the Olympics after unveiling the shape of this year’s maze.
Its annual maize maze, which opened last week, has been grown in the shape of two rowers.
No sooner had the maze opened than rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning and double skulls Katherine Grainger and Anna Watkins won gold medals. Overall team GB has picked up nine rowing medals in the London 2012 Games.
The maze at the farm in Frilford, near Abingdon, is open from 10am until 6pm daily.
