I know we seem to have only exited winter and finally hit summer without the appearance of spring. But today in the balmy conditions of Sochi on the Black Sea the medals for the next Winter Olympiad were unveiled.
They will be 1cm think and 10 cm in diameter. The front of the Olympic medals features the Olympic rings. The
reverse side has the name of the competition in English and the Sochi
logo. The official name of the games in Russian, English and French is
engraved on the rim.
The Paralympic medals were designed in the same style.
One side features the Paralympic symbol, the reverse has the logo of the
Games and the name of the competition in English. The medals also
contain inscriptions in Braille for the visually impaired.
