Laussane 2020 Youth Olympic Games Medals

The obverse of the medal depicts an icy spiral that has several meanings. Its five components represent the five continents pointing towards Lausanne, where the world’s young athletes came together for the Winter Youth Olympic Games 2020. The spiral also symbolises the prevailing culture of respect, friendship and excellence at the event. Finally, it celebrates the hard work and dedication of each individual athlete. The obverse also features the Olympic rings and the words “3rd Winter Youth Olympic Games” and “Lausanne 2020”.

The design, entitled “Beauty in Diversity”, was inspired by a quote from American poet and writer Maya Angelou: “In diversity there is beauty”. It was chosen from among close to 300 entries from 60 countries as part of the IOC’s medal obverse design competition. The panel of judges was made up of IOC Member Danka Barteková; Lausanne 2020 President Virginie Faivre; Viviane Morey, representing the Lausanne-based ERACOM art and communication school; IOC Young Reporters; and IOC Young Change-Makers. It is the first Olympic Medal to be designed by a New Zealander.

Bueno Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games Medal Design Competition 

Prior to designing the medals for the Lausanne Games, Zakea entered the competition for the Bueno Aires medal design competition. Although the design did not win it was a vital learning experience in studying how olympic medals fit within the larger branding of an Olympic Games identity. The spirals are representing how the young athletes of the world are coming together to Argentina and continuing the Olympic movement, hence in the centre is the Olympic flame. The lines in the background represent the neuroplasticity in the brain of the athletes. neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to modify, change, and adapt.
