See the Goaloids of Shepherd's Bush Green,

Originally installed to mark the London 2012 Olympic Games, the 41ft Goaloid sculptures on Shepherd's Bush Green are the work of artist Elliott Brook, and apparently  reference the 1908 British Olympic football team, who themselves won gold when at the White City Olympics.

We are told that the sculptures are made from goalposts, which sit on rotating turntables that allow them to revolve one way for 45 minutes, then the opposite way for another 45 minute, like a football match.
