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.


Click to access NBC coverage. Rather garbled but you can get the picture.

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.
