#3134 - Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics Winner's Diploma and Poster Estimate: $500+

Official silver medal winner’s diploma issued to Cuban taekwondo practitioner Urbia Meléndez at the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics, 11.75 x 8.25, with embossed silver Olympic rings to top and English/French text reading: “Games of the XXVII Olympiad, For Outstanding Achievement, Silver Medallist, Urbia Meléndez Rodriguez, Taekwondo—Women’s Under 49 KG.” Includes the original diploma presentation tube. Rolled and in fine condition, with trivial edgewear. Accompanied by a second diploma presentation tube, with bottom labeled “Luis Alberto Pérez,” a Cuban sprinter who won an Olympic bronze medal in the 4 x 100 metres relay at the Sydney Summer Games. The second tube contains a color print of a painting entitled Australian Bush Flowers. After defeating Turkey’s Döndü Güvenc in the semifinals of the flyweight category, Meléndez took on Australian favorite Lauren Burns in the gold medal round, coming up just short with a final score of 4-2. From The Mason Dinehart Collection.
