Fail. The medals for the 2010 Olympics look like old vinyl records that have been left out in the sun too long.

From Trendhunter Magazine:

That was the natural step after the ones at the previous Olympics that looked like CDs.

Just wait until the 2014 Winter Olympics ... medals that look like 8 tracks.
