Summary

There were 255 sculptures, including 80 medals and reliefs, submitted according to the Official Report, although those details do not match those of the art catalogues.

Austrian Edwin Grienauer earned the gold medal for Medailles (Medals). Two of them presented a concrete event. One medal was established for the award ceremonies in rowing in Vienna on 27 June 1927. An angel presents three athletes an olive branch. Another medal 60th anniversary was dedicated to rowing. In the background, a coxed eights can be recognized. In the foreground an athlete (the winner) waves a flag. The subject of rowing was familiar to Grienauer, who was a very good rower, as the 1927 Austrian Champion in double sculls. The third medal showed a naked athlete, the fourth a dragon slayer. It is not known for certain which medal was the gold medal one.

Dutch Chris van der Hoef was the silver medal winner. His work Médaille pour les Jeux Olympiques 1928 (Medal for the 1928 Olympic Games) was also considered for the Official Olympic Medals for the Amsterdam Games, but was not chosen. Nevertheless he created the Official Olympic Diploma. The bronze medal went to German Edwin Scharff for Plaquette, which represented an archer. Bernard Kramer noted, “The classical model depicts the shooter effectively in the center. The design of the rest of the image frame using simple geometric shapes forms an attractive contrast to the figurative representation.”
