Portland 2016 is only few days away and the organizers are slowly stopping any delay to prepare the opening of the event at their best.
Yesterday, on the manifestation official Twitter account the first picture of a gold medal finally appeared.
The shape resembles a flower, with the name of the competition written on its lower part. The flower is surely the Portland Rose, a famous version of the even more famous flower, the name of which comes from Portland Duchess who used to gather roses during her long trips, planting them back in her garden in England. The Portland Rose is so important for the locals that every year a Portland Rose Festival is organized.
The wait is almost over and a lot of this precious ”flowers” will soon hang on the neck of the World strongest athletes.
