Therese Johansson – Festival & fighting spirit
Thoughts about the design:
“My medal symbolizes the festival and the runner’s fighting spirit. My experience of Göteborgsvarvet Half Marathon comes from me being a spectator, or more like a participant in the strong and vibrant experience of Göteborgsvarvet as a festival. The common energy between crowd and runner. Preparations and expectations. Lactic acid and a cheering crowd. The feeling of making the runners run the extra mile and the joy of those who have completed their challenge and reached their goal.”
