Medal Recall

22 Nov shonakamori 2 Comments »

Had to send back my medal from Pan Ams the other day.  I thought there was something strange about it when the color looked a bit faded, but apparently a lot of athletes saw the same issue.  It’s definitely very nice of the USOC for taking care of all the costs associated with sending it and getting it re-coated.

Sending the medal off

Wonder if all of the organizations are doing this recall or if this is only done through the USOC? Also wondering why all of this happened and they didn’t use the right material to coat it in the first place…
