Even though the Olympics take place every 4 years, the Summer and the Winter Games are organized with a gap of 2 years in between. As a matter of fact, the Summer Games are held every leap year, such as 2000, 2004, and 2008. Whereas, the Winter Games happen every year after the leap year, for example- 2002, 2006 as well as 2010. Notably, the Winter Games take place on a smaller scale as compared to the Summer Games.

The meaning behind these designs is quite fascinating. The medals are described as “Tong Xin”, meaning “Together as one.” This clearly symbolizes the very spirit of not just the Olympics, but sports in general. To elaborate further on the meaning, the organizers communicated to the audience that there is “unity of heaven and earth and the unity of people’s hearts.”

The Chief designer, Hang Hai, has clearly put a lot of thought into these medals. Moreover, Beijing is the only city to have hosted both, the Summer Olympics in 2008 and now, the Winter Olympics in 2022.

A global symbol of friendship

Sport is a language in itself. It holds the power to bring people together from various platforms and fosters feelings of unity, togetherness, as well as promote healthy competition. To top it all, the athletes who come to participate have high spirits to break and make new records. They aim to outdo themselves by creating their personal bests, bestowing pride upon their nation.
