The Sochi 2014 Organising Committee has unveiled the medals that will be awarded at the Olympic Winter Games in 2014.
The presentation of the medals took place in St Petersburg, Russia, in the presence of International Olympic Committee Coordination Commission Chairman Jean-Claude Killy and Sochi 2014 President Dmitry Chernyshenko. The event followed the approval earlier in the day of the medals by the IOC’s Executive Board.
The Sochi 2014 Olympic medals are truly unique and feature Sochi 2014’s “Patchwork Quilt” – a mosaic of national designs from the various cultures and ethnicities of the Russian Federation. The medals depict the landscape of Sochi, with the sun’s golden rays reflecting through a prism of snowy mountain tops onto the sandy beaches of the Black Sea coast. Made by skilled craftsmen from a combination of metal and polycarbonate, the medals have a sense of lightness and distinctive beauty, which will make it all the more special for the lucky athletes that get to take one home from the Games next year.
