Doha: The 350 medal winners at the ANOC World Beach Games Qatar 2019 will be awarded one of the most distinctive medal designs ever. Shaped like an ocean pebble, the medals include engravings of marine life found all over the globe – dolphins, crabs, coral and various fish.
The medals were inspired by beach sport’s beautiful connection to nature, and capturing that essence has been a priority.
“These games are symbiotic with nature, and our mission has been to create the first multisport event that leaves positive impacts on local environments and local communities. These innovative medals symbolize both the success of the elite athletes, and our harmonious relationship with the environment.” said ANOC Secretary General Gunilla Lindberg.
