Description


Rare unawarded medal issued for windsurfing, a demonstration sport at the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics. Bronze, 60 mm, 121 gm. The front depicts the Los Angeles Games emblem over Olympic rings and laurel branches; the reverse features a raised design of a windsurfer between text: “Citius Altius Fortius, XXIII Olympiad.” One of the demo sports of the 1984 Summer Games, windsurfing made its first Olympic appearance between July 31 and August 8. Open only to men, the windsurfers raced over the Alpha course in the Long Beach Harbor, with the gold medal going to Dutchman Stephan van den Berg, the silver to American Scott Steele, and Kiwi Bruce Kendall taking bronze. Medals from Olympic demo sports have grown in popularity, with this unissued example a particularly scarce and apropos keepsake from the LA Olympiad. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
