The Organizing Committee of the 2018 presented the Medals!
The Organizing Committee of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang presented medals that will be awarded to future winners and prize-winners.
The design of the awards was based on the motives of Korea’s national culture. The surface of each medal contains cylindrical diagonal lines, which, according to the organizers, symbolize the history of the Olympic Games and the desire of the participants to win. Tapes of medals are made of fabrics traditional for Korea and contain inscriptions made in Hanguil font.
Each medal is stored in a special wooden case, the design of which is inspired by Korean architecture and symbolizes the many wooden buildings in the country.
