The medals for the 2018 Winter Olympics have been unveiled ahead of the start of the February Games.

Athletes from across the world will descend on Pyeongchang in the coming weeks to compete in one of 15 different disciplines, the culmination of years preparing for their shot at gold.

Games organisers showcased the designs of the 2018 gold, silver and bronze medals last September.

Some 259 sets of medals have been created for the Winter Olympics, with the look and feel based on, erm, "the texture of tree trunks, with the front bearing the Olympic rings and dynamic diagonal lines that reflect both the history of the Olympics and the determination of the participants".

Even the ribbons have a local touch, created using South Korean fabric gapsa.

Athletes will not be too concerned over that kind of thing - all they want is to win one. We'll keep you up to date with the latest medal details here throughout the Games.

The 2018 Winter Olympics begin on February 9. The medal table will appear here from then.
