With the 2010 Vancouver Olympics around the corner, bronze, silver and gold bling will soon be a hot topic. Although the medals given out during this year’s winter Olympics will follow in the circular tradition of old, designer Martin Azua has been giving the medals for other sporting events a futuristic new twist.

Medalist at Barcelona’s 2010 European Athletics Championships will receive minimalist 'v' shaped medals. My favorite piece of Azua’s futuristic bling has to be the transparent water-filled medals he did for the World Swimming Championships. Stats for Futuristic Olympic Bling Trending: Older & Chilly
