Eiffel Tower adorns Paris 2011 European Athletics Indoor Championships medals
The image of an athlete running against the backdrop of the iconic Eiffel Tower, reflecting the rich tradition of athletics in the city, will adorn medals awarded to competitors at the 2011 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Paris.
The biggest athletics event on the world indoor calendar in 2011 will take place in the French capital city through 4-6 March.
A separate commemorative medal, circular in shape, has been designed to be distributed as mementos for the championships.
European Athletics has approved both medal designs presented by the Paris 2011 Organising Committee.
