IAAF unveils medals for 2017 World Championships

Organizers unveiled the official medals for the 2017 IAAF world championships Tuesday morning in London.

The medals feature a careful design that captures symbols from each event of the tournament. The symbols come together to form what looks like the inner workings of a watch.

The event takes place from Aug. 8-13 in London and features Usain Bolt’s last world championship competition.

Designer Toye, Kenning & Spencer, based in Birmingham, England, sought to answer the question, “what makes an athlete tick?”

For the first-time ever, coaches of podium finishers will also receive medals. CBC
