I noticed the medalists at this year's games are also handed a weird little multi-colored thing. Does anyone know what it is?

In memorium. Bob Hoover died 25 Oct 2016 at 94. In WWII he was shot down in a Spitfire and stole an FW-190 to escape. He spent decades at air shows flying Ole Yeller, shown

Which probably holds several of the 450,000 condoms that are being handed out to the athletes. I assume the medal winners will need more than the also-rans...

The three guys in Erak's photo are doing OK... I would be surprised if any of them are making less than half a million euro per season.

"The medal fits perfectly inside the holder so those athletes fortunate enough to win one can display it proudly for all to see."

"“The athletes who top the podium in Rio will receive medals made from gold that has been extracted without the use of mercury and which was produced according to strict sustainability criteria, from the initial mining all the way through to the design of the end product,” Rio officials said in a statement before the Games. Recycled material went into the medals, recycled plastic constitutes half of the ribbons that hold the medals, and the podiums will be turned into furniture after the Olympics. (In a nice touch, the medals for Paralympic winners make distinctive sounds when shaken, so vision-impaired winners can know which medal they won.)"
