Antti Kasvio’s Olympic bronze medal
Antti Kasvio became the first Finnish Olympic swimming medallist in 72 years by winning bronze in men’s 200 metres freestyle at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona. All in all, Finland has won only four Olympic medals in swimming.
The obverse side of the Summer Olympic medals was updated for the 1992 Games after remaining unaltered since 1928. The motif depicts Nike, the goddess of victory, holding a palm leaf and a laurel wreath. The reverse side features the official logo of the respective Games. The Barcelona 1992 medal was designed by Xavier Corberó.
