I discovered this "hard to find" Club Med Omnisports medal at an antiques fair in Athens.

The legendary French Club Mediterranee (founded in 1950's) - known as Club Med- is an all inclusive resort concept with locations in many exotic places around the world. The club's logo is the Trident (symbol of Neptune/ Poseidon - God of seas & oceans in Greek mythology).

The medal dates back to early 1980s when the Club Med's campaign was based on the prevailing human need of that era; in the high-consuming 80s happiness became a must-have desire focused on individualism and material pleasure. Drawing on irony, the Club Med's slogan at the time was: "la plus belle idee depuis l' invention du bohneur..", which means "The best idea since happiness was invented".

Item Specifics:

Type: Aqua Sports Medal/ Tournament Participants Award Badge
Material: Bronze/ Heavy Cast Brass
Measures: approx. 1 1/4" across, 1.5" (4cm) height, 1 1/2" diameter)
