If Paris won bid to host the 2024 Olympics, medal winning athletes will have the opportunity to share their success with family members and loved ones.

The medals, which are designed by Philippe Starck, can be split into four but looks exactly the same as the typical sporting medal on the surface.

"Today, more than ever, the truth is that you're not winning alone, so I wanted this medal to reflect that," said Starck. "If the winner wants to share it, they can share it."

Paris previously hosted the 1900 Summer Olympics and the 1924 Summer Olympics. If awarded the 2024 Summer Olympics, Paris will become the second city (after London) to host the Olympic games three times.

The 2024 Olympics will either be hosted by Paris or Los Anglos. The winner will be announced on 13 September.
