Getting upclose with the YOG Medals - Yes Youth Can

You want to see the YOG Medals up close? I saw it at the International Convention Centre, Level 3.

I am not sure if it's the real medal or the replica, but there was a security guard nearby, so maybe it's the real thing.

This is the Gold Medal.
I like the design, do you? I like the side that has the 1st Summer Youth Olympic Games.

The Bronze medal.

The silver medal did not come out clear on my camera.

If you thought they were designed in Singapore like me, we were wrong.
Reading the below will tell you the story.

The medals are entitled "Yes, Youth Can".
Designed by Setsuko Fukuzawa from Montreal, Canada.

Go take a peek at the medals upclose.
While there, you can also take a look at Singapore's medals from the Beijing Olympics too.
And also Singapore's 1960 Rome Olympics.

For your information the reverse and the border of the obverse of the youth olympic medal design is design by an anonymous local designer. Please don't be mistaken by the information provided in the exhibition. ;)
