Starck, who also designed the Olympic Torch back in 1992, came up with a concept design that allows the medals to split into four and be shared with friends, family, or coaches.

"Today, more than ever, the truth is that you're not winning alone, so I wanted this medal to reflect that," he said. "If the winner wants to share it, they can share it […] It's a really nice way of truly showing team spirit. The winner can literally take his or her medal and separate it into pieces to be given away."

In France is successful with its bid to have the Games hosted in Paris, Starck's sharable design will be awarded to athletes in 2024.
