Watching the Olympics the other day I was struck with curiosity about the medals being issued at the 2008 games.
There is obviously a lot of importance attached to these items.
On one had you have the recipients who have spent the best part of their life working towards the achievement, and on the other is the host nation who attempt to make a design that captures the event and the flavour of their nation.
I wondered that as China moves into a position of global power if they had enough self awareness to make sure that the medals carried those words that the western world have embraced with open arms.
"Made in China"
