    Fantastic. Winter Olympics have had awesome looking medals recently when comparing to the Summer Olympic medals. IOC does not allow much imagination for the design of the summer games. Winter games’ designers have more freedom.

    One thing that bugs me in the medals of the pictures if the apostrophe (‘ sign) . It looks like it is not apostrophe (‘) but an accent sign (´).
    It probably is not the medal makers’ fault but the designer of the typeface or font.
