The 6 Ultra-Special, Asteroid (Actually Chelyabinsk Meteor) Imbued Olympic Medals At The Sochi Winter Olympics 2014.
…by Anura Guruge
This is so cool!
Hard to believe that there hasn’t been more media coverage of it.
Not sure I totally agree with the ethics of it …
i.e., just making 6 special medals,
on the assumption, or hope, that a Russian wins one on the
one year anniversary.
But, that is Russia.
Yes, I know other countries have done special medals too …
but doubt if any were as cool (or possibly rare) as these six.
I wrote about it, twice, last year … in my ISON books.
This is from the BIG, black ISON book — which is still selling as it should!
If you can’t remember here is a video from Wikipedia …
which has a pretty good coverage of the event.
