It is the coveted prize every athlete wants to go home with, and to mark 50 Days to go to the 2018 European Championships the medals to be presented to the seven sports in Glasgow and Berlin were revealed to the public for the first time.

The countdown to Europe’s biggest multi-sport event of the year is well and truly on and it was Jess Learmonth, freshly announced as the official Glasgow 2018 Triathlon Ambassador, that had the honour of unveiling the specially commissioned Championships medals.

Jess, known for her swimming and cycling power and speed, won her first major international title in June 2017 at the ETU European Championships in Kitzbuhel.

The reigning Triathlon European Champion ran into George Square in Glasgow this afternoon to deliver the medals for their first public appearance. Enthusiastically welcomed by pupils from the Glasgow School of Sport, the medals were presented to three aspiring young athletes who are part of the #6forGlasgow2018 initiative by Sports Minister Aileen Campbell and Councillor David McDonald, Depute Leader, Glasgow City Council.

Jess was joined in George Square for this special event by local hero Marc Austin, who won Team Scotland’s first medal of the Games at Gold Coast 2018 in the men’s Triathlon, and two-time reigning European 400m champion Martyn Rooney, representing athletics which will be staged in Berlin.

Jess and Marc hope to be two of more than 3,000 athletes who will be competing across six sports in Scotland from 2-12 August 2018, whilst Martyn has his sights set on defending his title as one of 1,500 athletes in action in Berlin. The Berlin 2018 European Athletics Championships will take place from 7-12 August.

At any major championship, the medals awarded are a powerful symbol of the sporting excellence achieved by each athlete. They will be worn with pride, not only when presented on the podium at the Championships but when athletes travel back to their communities across the continent and share their success with other young people, inspiring them to follow in their footsteps.

The unique, beautifully crafted medals have been specially designed by Touch of Ginger, for this inaugural multi-sport event, as the unifying element for the seven individual European Sports Federations and will be a lasting legacy of the event’s first edition.

The medal design is bold and dynamic with a contemporary triangular prism form inspired by the European Championships emblem. The front features a stylish 3D interpretation of the Championships brand whilst the rear displays the participating sports federation logo along with event specific data in a clever facetted design. Each medal is hung from a ribbon featuring a striking crystal design that builds to a full spectrum of rainbow colours that capture the spirit of this multi-sport event.

Thrilled to be the first athlete to see the medals, Jess Learmonth said: “The fact that my first major international title was winning the 2017 European Championships makes being an Ambassador for the Glasgow 2018 even more special and I will be going all out to try and retain my title.

“Every athlete wants to win a medal at a major championship, so to be here today to unveil the medals for Glasgow 2018 is really exciting and to be the very first athlete to set eyes on them is really special.

“I love the medal design, I think it looks amazing. It is very contemporary and reflects the unique Championship ‘crystal’ logo really well. I particularly like the fact that it is the same medal design for all seven sports, but then personalised to each with the sports own logo on the back. It is a great way to unify all the athletes across Europe, striving to achieve the same level of sporting excellence.”

Martyn Rooney said, “I’m looking forward to running in the Berlin Olympic Stadium again. It holds some great memories for me as it is where I helped Great Britain to 4×400m silver medals at the 2009 World Championships. No one has won the European 400m title three times, so to win and achieve that would be amazing. But with so many talented 400m runners across Europe at the moment it will be a tough challenge.”

There will be a total of 188 medals events held across the 11 days of competition in Scotland and Berlin (50 Athletics, 72 Aquatics, 30 Cycling, 3 Golf, 12 Gymnastics, 18 Rowing, 3 Triathlon).

Sports Minister Aileen Campbell said: “With 50 days to go until Glasgow 2018, the countdown is truly on to Scotland’s next multi-sport event and anticipation is building further with the unveiling of the medals today. It will be wonderful to see some of Europe’s best competing in Scotland to claim their place on the podium.

“We are on track for a fantastic summer of sport and it is great to welcome Jess Learmonth to our family of Ambassadors and hear the excitement from the athletes.

“The European Championships provide a fantastic opportunity for Scotland to build on our reputation for hosting major sporting events, ensuring a memorable experience for athletes, officials and fans alike.”

Depute leader of Glasgow City Council, Cllr David McDonald said: “With just 50 days to go, athletes all over Europe now have their sights firmly set on these medals and sporting success in Glasgow.

“For winners, they will be the ultimate reward for years of hard work, sacrifice and a single-minded dedication to their sport.

“They will also be a lasting symbol of the Championships that will be seen around the world and help to inspire young athletes to follow in the footsteps of their heroes.”
