Medals: 1 Bronze (1 Total)
Julien MÃ©dÃ©cin remains the only Monagasque Olympic medal winner, as of 2010. An architect, he received this bronze medal for his design of the Stadium for Monte Carlo in Fontvieille with a cycling track, a rugby and football pitch, and a nautical basin.
Son of an architect himself, Julien MÃ©dÃ©cin was admitted to the Ãcole des Beaus-Arts in 1917. In 1921, he graduated with the plans for a country house. In the following years, he worked as an architect in Paris and Nice and became architect of the city of Monte Carlo. At the Exposition Internationale des Arts DÃ©coratifs et Industriels Modernes at Paris in 1925 MÃ©dÃ©cin also built the Pavillon de Monaco which was a luxurious residence reminiscent of Mediterranean Coast villas. The main front had three doors, the main faÃ§ades were painted with bizarre frescos by Joseph Bouchon and the interior was painted by Ãmile WÃ©ry, illustrating fruits and flowers. He joined the SociÃ©tÃ© des architectes diplÃ´mÃ©s du gouvernement (S.A.D.G.) in 1944 and was appointed Knight of the Legion of Honor.
