So athletes in the 2020 Olympics are going to be competing for junk.
No joke. The medals for the Tokyo games will be made entirely out of recycled e-waste.
I’ve got bad news for all you aspiring Olympic champions out there. Your gonna get hosed. Your first-rate effort will win you a second-rate prize.
Get this – the Olympic gold medal is mostly made out of silver. True story. The gold medal is actually formed mostly out of silver coated with about 6 grams of gold plating.
So, gold medal winners – for all practical purposes – you’re getting a silver medal.
Sorry about your luck.
