Armand Duplantis and other Swedish stars who may win medals in the Olympics in Paris this summer will get a part of the Eiffel Tower itself.
It emerged when the Olympic organization showed what the medals look like in the Olympics and Paralympics.
In each gold, silver and bronze medal, parts of the Eiffel Tower will take place. And yes – the iron actually comes from the 330 meter high tower.

Since its completion in 1889, the Eiffel Tower has been continuously repaired. From the beginning, the tower was only intended to stand for 20 years.
The medals’ hexagonal iron plate consists of the replaced parts from previous repairs. Each medal uses 18 grams of the Eiffel Tower’s iron.
The Olympics open on July 26 and the Paralympics start on August 28.
