Tokyo Olympics: What do the medals look like?
Each athlete that reaches the podium will be awarded with a unique Olympic prize. The medals in Tokyo are made from recycled cellphones and other electronics. In February 2017, Tokyo 2020 organizers began soliciting donations from the public for their old electronics, and the gold, silver and bronze was extracted and utilized to forge the medals. The Vancouver Winter Games in 2010 similarly utilized recycled electronics in its Olympic medals.
While the back of the medal features the Tokyo 2020 logo, in accordance with IOC regulations, the front depicts Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, in front of Panathinaikos Stadium.
Tokyo Olympics: What does the Tokyo Games logo look like?
The official emblem is called “Harmonized Chequered Emblem,” and it features a blue checkered circular pattern above the words “Tokyo 2020” and the familiar Olympic rings.
The logo was created by Japanese artist Asao Tokolo, who is known for his geometric stylings. The checkered pattern — “ichimatsu moyo” — dates back more than 250 years from the Edo period and was first popularized in Kabuki theater.
Tokolo’s design includes three rectangular shapes, which interlock to form a ring. Olympic organizers say the logo “represents different countries, cultures and ways of thinking.”
