Every Olympian spends their days dreaming of winning an Olympic medal - whether it be a bronze, silver, or gold (of course they would prefer the gold medals, obviously). It should come as no surprise that every Olympics takes great pride in the crafting and design of creating their medals. London has finally revealed the medals that they will be giving out during the London 2012 games.
Highlights of the medals include -
- They weigh in at 14 ounces, which makes them the heaviest in history
- Intersecting lines which convey togetherness and outreach
- The River Thames behind the logo
- 2,100 of these will be given out during the London 2012 Games.
