【gmtlight News】Each Olympic Games has its own regional and cultural characteristics, and the Tokyo Olympic Games are no exception. Recently, the design of Tokyo Olympic medals has just been announced. What attracts attention is the material, which actually comes from scrap iron.
Olympic medals are a form of medal award to motivate athletes in the Olympic Games. It is provided by the Organizing Committee of each Olympic Games, but it belongs to the IOC and is awarded by the IOC to the winning athletes.
At the first Olympic Games in 1896, only the first two medals were awarded to each individual event. The champion won the silver medal and the runner-up won the bronze medal. The medal was designed by French artist Sharplen and was 50mm in diameter. At the same time, according to the ancient tradition, the organizing committee laid wreaths to the winners. The first wreath was made of olive branches, and the second was made of laurel leaves. In addition, the winners were awarded trophies, vases and other prizes.
The Medal of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games is gold inlaid with jade, which is a unique cultural element of China. The Chinese mythological figure Sun Wukong was born from a stone.
“The medal materials of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games reflect Japan's deep-rooted concept of energy conservation and environmental protection. Although it is made of waste material, its value and significance should not be underestimated.”Mr Wang,The manager of production in gmtlight said.
