Some may think that I'm behind on the news, since this was announced back in March. Others may think that I'm just plain crazy, since the Beijing Olympics aren't taking place until next summer. But, this weekend, I happened upon some pictures of the Beijing Olympic medals:

For the first time in the history of the Olympics, a mineral (jade), is being added to the medals. The darker green is for the bronze medal, while the whiter jade goes with the gold. I'd love to be able to see these things in person, but alas, I think this may be the closest I get to seeing them. =P
