With less than four weeks to go until the first champion is crowned, organisers have today (5) revealed the medals specially commissioned for the World Athletics Indoor
Championships Glasgow 24 following a design competition.
Taking place from 1-3 March, the World Athletics Indoor Championships will feature more than 700 athletes as they compete across 26 events.
Although this is the 19th edition of the championships, this is the first time the event has been held in Scotland. This is reflected in the design of the medals, which incorporate the thistle inspired event brand, complemented by a selection of well-known Glasgow landmarks around its outer rim, giving athletes a little piece of Glasgow to remember their triumph, long after they leave the city.
