If you intend to win a gold medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, you might want to consider doing so on February 15. Why? From RIA Novosti:
Some gold medal winners at the Sochi Winter Olympics are set to be rewarded for their out-of-this-world performances with extra medals embedded with meteorite fragments, Russian officials said Wednesday.
The special medals are on offer to athletes who win their events on February 15, 2014, the one-year anniversary of a meteorite strike that injured 1,600 people, smashing windows and causing other damage in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk.
A gold medal isn't cool. A gold medal containing space rocks that may or may not give you special powers is cool.
