There are 1,026 medals ready for the winners of the Winter Olympic Games, which open in Turin on 10 February. As large as a CD and slightly concave, the medals are like doughnuts (or Olympic rings) with a hole in the middle. On the front of each medal are the symbols of Turin 2006 and of the sport for which it will be awarded. The solid gold, silver and bronze medals have been designed by the Olympic graphics team, led by Italian Dario Quatrini, and weigh almost 500g each.
