THE STORY BEHIND THE MEDAL
No matter what reason brought one into triathlon, one thing is for sure, we all run towards that shiny piece of bling that awaits us at the finish line. The medal is not only proof of finishing the race, but also a souvenir that shows the amount oftraining, sacrifice, and dedication that you put in. The inspiration of the IPPGroup Challenge Vietnam 2016 powered by CRTC medal comes from the Dong Son drums. The bronze drums were fabricated by the Dong Son culture in the Red River Delta of northern Vietnam. Dong Son drums were used as both musical instruments and cult objects. The scenes depict the daily life of ancient Viet and reflect the artistic talent and mind. In the middle of the medal is the Challenge Family symbol combined with Vietnamese national flag. The Challenge Family logo stands for Vitality, Passion, Victory, and Inclusive.
