IOC to reallocate Olympic medals to 10 Olympians during Paris 2024

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced Friday that ten Olympians will receive reallocated Olympic medals at the Champions Park during the 2024 Paris Olympic Games on August 9, reported Xinhua.

The IOC will hold special ceremonies to give these 10 athletes the chance to celebrate with family, friends and fans in the Trocadero Gardens, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.

These athletes have already had their reallocation approved by the IOC Executive Board before the Paris 2024, but have not yet had their ceremony. The ceremony is one of the six options to receive their reallocated Olympic medals in a way that recognises their achievements and gives them exposure.

The 10 athletes are:

Beverly McDonald, Jamaica, women's 200m bronze (athletics) at Sydney 2000

Chelsea Hammond-Ross, Jamaica, women's long jump bronze (athletics), Beijing 2008

Tarek Yehia Fouad Abdelazim, Egypt, men's 85kg bronze (weightlifting), London 2012

Erik Kynard, United States, men's high jump gold (athletics), London 2012

Derek Drouin, Canada, men's high jump gold (athletics), London 2012

Jeon Sang-Guen, South Korea, men's +105kg bronze (weightlifting), London 2012

Abeba Aregawi, Ethiopia, women's 1500m bronze (athletics), London 2012
