The prize and commemorative medals of the 2nd European Games were presented in Mir Castle exactly a month before the start of the multi-sport event.
The location of the medal presentation was not chosen by chance. The presentation is taking place on the same day as the torch relay for the “Flame of Peace” has reached Mir. The relay symbolises the core principles of the Olympic movement: understanding, friendship, an atmosphere of solidarity and global unity, as well as the harmonious development of the human body and soul.
The main symbol of the Games - the magical flower “Paparats Kvetka” - was incorporated into the medal design, which was conceived by Brama Branding company.
Medal legend The shape of the medal is a classical circle in the middle of which there appear to be sunbeams with fuzzy outlines. This is exactly how the sun looks on a bright summer day - a nod to the season when the 2nd European Games will be held. The end of June is…

Uomini solidi come il Masso non ne nascono più. Classe 1947, pubblicista dal 1977, alpino dell’Anno 2017, è la bibbia del ciclismo e dello sci del Bresciano. Guai a dirglielo, però: si (e vi) schernirebbe. Perché, a differenza dei nerd perfettini e urlanti ma vuoti che pullulano oggi nella professione, Massolini è giornalista dentro: testimone, mai protagonista. Perché quello dev’esserlo l’atleta e magari chi lo allena o prepara, non chi per mestiere è chiamato al racconto e alla critica. 
Angiolino, che pure in vita sua ha conosciuto anche la sofferenza vera per la perdita della moglie Marilena (al cui ricordo ha dedicato per vent’anni la onlus e l’omonimo Memorial benefico), però è stato anche fortunato.
