Zeitung Heute : Medals locked up in the Tower

Time for the crown jewels to move over. On the occasion of the Paralympic Games the Queen had to make room for some valuable items: The Paralympic bronze, silver and gold medals are kept safely locked up in the Tower of London. The precious prizes have been guarded there as safely as the British monarchy's treasures have been for the last 600 years. The competing athletes certainly value them as much as the Queen does the crown jewels. The medals will next be seen draped around the necks of the lucky Paralympians during the 502 victory ceremonies. More than 2,100 of the athletes' favorite jewels will be handed out during the 11 days of the Games. The Paralympic Medals were designed by jewellery artist and lecturer Lin Cheung.
