    A bit cluttered for my taste, but they probably look much better than these pictures. Regardless though, all the best to the athletes.

    I like them. They look like watch parts as used in steampunk jewellery. Steampunk Olympics, go figure!

    The Sochi medals weigh just over 1 lb (depending on metal used) & are about 0.4 inches thick. (Pic via @Sochi2014)
    NOTE: Pic is same as previously posted tweet.

    Wow, I think they look great! Looks like a lot of craftsmanship and thought went into them.
