Vancouver medals

MEDALS awarded at next year's Winter Olympics in Vancouver will feature Canadian aboriginal art, and for the first time in Games history, every single medal will have a unique design. Designs for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games' medals were unveiled on Thursday in a ceremony at Vancouver's athletes village that was replete with drummers from the local native Indian communities that will help to host the event. Every gold, silver and bronze medal to be awarded at the Games, which starts on February 12, will feature sections of two larger works of contemporary aboriginal art. Their surfaces will be undulating rather than flat.
