Designs for the gold, silver and bronze medals to be awarded at the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing were unveiled Wednesday as part of the 100 days countdown.
The medals have five rings and a centre and are named Tong Xin, meaning together as one. The design is based on ancient Chinese pendants and are intended to represent the Olympic spirit of bringing people together.
Olympic rings are engraved in the centre on the front of the medals, while the back includes the Beijing 2022 emblem with the official name of the Games written in Chinese. There are also 24 dots to represent the 24editions of the Winter Olympics. The event the medal is awarded for will also be included in the engraving.
The first medals at the Olympics will be handed out on February 5. The Winter Olympics are set for Feb. 4-20 in Beijing.
