In the eyes of netizens, the design of domestic marathon medals has made great progress compared with the past, and many medals have integrated local characteristic cultural elements and have gradually developed into cultural and creative products, not only limited to the medals themselves.

In this video, the medals of the Huainan Marathon were well received. According to the Huainan Internet Publicity Management Office, this year's Huainan Marathon Organizing Committee has solicited the design of the medals from the society, and selected 1 best work and 2 excellent works, and the final designer of the medal is Zhang Wei.

A few days ago, some netizens said that the medal "show" of the Xi'an Marathon arrived, and the "door to victory" on the medal could be opened with a hidden key.

According to reports, the medals of the 2023 Xi'an Marathon were created by the medal designer Fu Kun, inspired by the "door and key", interpreting the indissoluble bond between the Xi'an Marathon and the door. On the medal, the abstract arch bent like a rainbow lies horizontally, the gold-plated Olympic sports center is dazzling, and the Yongning Gate Tower in the center is vivid.

The key hole door opens, and the victory door, which symbolizes the honor of the finisher, rises from the ground. The Yongning Gate slowly rises to reveal the whole picture, and the interior and above of the Olympic Sports Center, "XI'AN" and "FINISHER" quietly emerge, a series of movements like running, inheriting the classic design language of the Xi'an Marathon medals. A city, a door, this time opened by running, and the key was embedded in the back of the medal.

As a popular marathon, this year's medals of the Beijing Marathon are also favored by participants. According to the organizing committee, the design of the 2023 Beijing Marathon medals revolves around the landmark buildings on Beijing's central axis, and the outer contours of the medals are inspired by ancient tokens and are rectangular in shape. The square shape implies the big pattern, and the round door frame implies perfection and inclusiveness. The central axis of Beijing in the center represents the buildings arranged in order from near to far, and the three-dimensional reliefs bring a strong visual impact.

The medal uses the structure of folio sliding to reflect the beautiful meaning of "opening the city gate and welcoming the future", and the Chinese red quicksand in the "city gate" has a gorgeous dynamic effect that makes people have the visual experience of "red flag flying".

I have to sigh that the design of the marathon medal has begun to "roll". (ENDS)
