Singapore will host first youth Olympic games in 2010, this will be the first time when youth of the world will face an international competition on global scale under the Olympic flag and flame.
For this purpose IOC called internet users to send designs for upcoming youth Olympic medals. As I am greatly passionate about Olympism and Olympic movement plus I am also good in arts and creativity so I took this chance to express my passion in art.
My designs are 70mm in diameter and 6mm in thickness.These three medal designs for Singapore youth Olympic Games are excellent representation of Singapore’s uniqueness and diversity of youth,. All three medals have a different angle of hand showing passion and celebration of winner’s heart and soul. These medals when placed in a series (gold, silver and bronze respectively) will make a beautiful image of three hands holding a singe robe of Greek Goddess Nike, spreading Olympic values throughout the youth of the World. All three medals have a small iconic representation of Athens’ Acropolis, home of the Olympic Games and Olive trees giving message of peace and freedom. Each medal has different type of Olive trees in background, different hands and different landscape but all three medals have same acropolis and Olympic rings, it represents that everything changes with time but Greek inspiration enclosed in Acropolis and passion for victory remains untouched. Hence every medal is a piece of art in itself.
The design inspiration of the medal hook derives from celebration and history of Olympic Games.The Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games medal is a blending of traditional Olympic culture and the spirit of youth. It gives the winners of the Games great honor and acclamation as recognition of their achievement. This new design will inspire youth for future victories and Olympic ideals.
