Iconic Glaswegian landmarks were the inspiration for Scottish artist Graeme Clark's medal designs for next month's World Athletics Indoor Championships.

With less than four weeks to go until 700 of the world's best athletes arrive at the Emirates Arena, organisers have revealed the look of the prized gold, silver and bronze they will be competing for.

Last summer Scottish artists were invited to submit their designs in a bid to become a part of history as the event, which takes place from March 1-3 and is being held in the country for the first time.

“As a man from Edinburgh, I’ve always enjoyed trips through to Glasgow for various exhibitions, gigs, and shopping. It’s a city full of culture and serves as a great creative inspiration for designers like me," he said.

“It’s also a place full of inspiring talent and iconic architecture. I’ve worked with many Glaswegian brands over the years and the city always seems to birth amazing things. The city has a lot of iconic monuments and structures, that served as the inspiration for the design.”

The medals - 108 in total will be awarded across 26 different events - have been produced by specialist manufacturer Toye, Kenning and Spencer, who produced the medals for Birmingham's Commonwealth Games in 2022.

“When we issued a callout to the Scottish craft and design community, we knew the standard of submissions would be high, but we were hugely impressed with the quality of the response," said Annette Christie, the chair of Glasgow Life, who organised the competition.

“While we had a tough decision to make, Graeme’s design stood out as the clear winner, and we are delighted to be able to create a medal that incorporates so much of Glasgow’s iconic skyline and has a distinctly Scottish feel.

“Glasgow is proud to be hosting one of the biggest sports events in Scotland this year, and I can’t wait to see the medals presented at the Championships next month. I am sure the winning athletes will all treasure the small part of Glasgow they take home with them.”

Meanwhile, the Museum of World Athletics has now opened in the city ahead of the championships, celebrating over 170 years of track and field history.

The spikes Liz McColgan and Jake Wightman wore to win their world titles in 1991 and 2022 are on display as are tributes to Scottish Olympic 400m champions Wyndham Halswelle and Eric Liddell.

A huge image of Laura Muir - who is expected to be the top Scottish star of the championships - greets visitors, with the free to attend exhibition based in the St Enoch Centre until March 3.
