Tokyo 2020 Games Medals
The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games will launch its new Tokyo 2020 medal project in April this year. The project entails precious metals such as gold, silver and bronze being salvaged from discarded mobile phones and other small electronic devices, and recycled for the production of medals to be awarded to athletes at the Tokyo 2020 Games. The project also highlights Tokyo 2020's commitment to actively engage the general public and offer everyone the opportunity to play a role in the preparations and delivery of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
