Unique medals were unveiled in the presence of Olympic champion Tony Estanguet, the president of the athletes’ commission Martin Fourcade, and Antoine Arnault. The medals are designed by the French jewelry brand Chaumet, owned by the LVMH group, which is a partner of the games. Each medal will contain a piece of iron from the Eiffel Tower within a hexagonal pendant struck with rays, symbolizing the radiance of France. These unique medals are often of greater value than the bonuses awarded to the athletes.
