Paris 2024 Olympics and Paralympics Unveil Unique Medals Crafted from Eiffel Tower Metal

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) revealed today that the medals for the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympics and Paralympics will be crafted from the very metal that graces the iconic Eiffel Tower. As anticipation builds for the mega sporting event set to kick off on July 26 and run through August 11 for the Olympics, followed by the Paralympics from August 28 to September 8, organizers have added an extra layer of significance to the coveted awards.

The decision to use the Eiffel Tower metal for the medals underscores the rich history and cultural significance of the host city, creating a unique link between the prestigious awards and one of Paris's most recognizable landmarks.
