Best race medal
Quote | Reply
Best race medal you have ever gotten? Whether it be for any race (5k,10k,hafl,full,ultra,sprint-HIM). Pictures would be nice too.

Mine: Age group win at South beach tri, looks like real gold and pretty damn heavy.

Well, I've only raced once so I am quite proud of the Kansas City medal.


And my awesome bottle that I was awarded like the podium winners. I did not PLACE, but trust me, I EARNED that prize!

I will post a picture of mine after Louisville Ironman in August. I have 2 finisher medals from Kona back in 1985 and 86. After not doing triathlons for 20 years, this will be my best race medal.

1st place, mother's day duathlon in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

Age grouper, but still. It WAS my first race.

All my "finisher" medals sit in a box in my closet. Except for my Ragnar medal from last year. That has a prominent spot, hanging on my fridge door, because it has a built-in bottle-opener.

Mine...all in a drawer I think...hell if I know. Folks who get that picture frame goof ball narcissistic IM medal holder are just sorta pathetic. If you win your AG or over all that is one thing...buy why put proof of your 1432nd place predominantly on the wall?

X2, all medals on a shelf somewhere in a pile, except for last years Ragnar. I love that bottle opener, you can use your whole hand as leverage on it.

We got really cool medals made from recycled bike chains and cables this weekend at the Deuces Wild Tri festival in Show Low, AZ.

My favourite by far. It doubles as a weapon.

Not a medal, but to this day I love the anatomically correct bull trophies they gave out at the New Windsor Fair and Rodeo Days Run in New Windsor, IL. OA winners got cowbells; AG winners got bulls with whangusges on a pedestal. I have a couple of cowbells...and those are nice and all, but the trophies are much more of a conversation piece.

I think I threw most of them away. I might have a couple including my first marathon, but not sure. I got to hold my buddy's Beijing Gold medal, now that was sick. It came with a pretty cool case too. That's about the only medal I've ever really been impressed with...

Oh come to think of it the bottles of syrup they gave out at Mooseman/timberman in the past were pretty cool.

Actually, I forgot -- my favorite piece of finisher's hardware has my name carved on it. Thing is, I have to drive three hours to see it: http://www.savagemantri.org/...0x384/bricks_mid.jpg

x2 Thoroughly impressive medal. Not as functional as the hybrid medal/bottle openers that are all the rage now but much nicer!

Another notable: Jodie Siff of 5430 Sports used to handcraft ALL the AG awards for the Boulder Triathlon Series (1st through 3rd for each AG, i.e., a lot of awards!). My favorites: A clock made out of old chainrings and a trophy consisting of an old chainring + engraved stone. Really nice.

This brought me down a bit. I showed one of my medals to a non-racing friend and she said it looked like it came from Walt Disney World: silver Mickey Mouse ears... (ITU World Championship silver medal!)

A 10" plus or minus engraved knife. Sharp as hell. Got it for winning overall at a small sprint in honor of a young man that was killed overseas. The guy's whole family was there to present me the knife at a kick-ass post race bbq.

Oh, and shameless plug...
Here is last year's trophy for the Elite Podium spots for the race that I put on. Handmade, the winners loved them...


So come race the Damtri in NW Pennsylvania to win a beaver....

The most functional prize I ever got was an etched bottle of maple syrup from Timberman.

Other medals I don't even look at, couldn't tell one from the other.
