PRAGUE, Czech Republic, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- An Olympic rowing champion in the Czech Republic placed the final block on the world's largest Lego tower in the country's capital.
Miroslava Knapkova, 32, who won a gold medal in this year's Olympic Games in London, placed the final Lego block on the 106-foot-tall Lego tower in Prague, the British newspaper The Sun reported Tuesday.
"I used to play with Lego as a small girl, when my father brought it home from abroad for me," Knapkova said.
The tower was constructed to mark Lego's 80th anniversary. The previous record holder, which measured 105 feet tall, was constructed in Britain earlier in the summer, Metro.co.uk reported.
