A Derbyshire man who believes the Olympics should mark the efforts of those who come fourth in their event, has created a new medal.

The award comes after bookshop owner David Mitchell, from Cromford, studied the history of the Olympics and concluded times have changed.

"There used to be 84 countries in the Olympic Games, now there are 204," said Mr Mitchell.
“以前奥运会只有84个国家参加,而现在增加到了204个,” Mitchell先生说道。

"There has been an increase in competitiveness and higher standards need to be taken into account."

Mr Mitchell has already created medals for British divers Tom Daley and Peter Waterfield, who came fourth in the men's synchronised 10m platform diving.
Mitchell先生已经为英国跳水运动员Tom Daley和Peter Waterfield制作了奖牌。他们在本届男子双人10米跳台的比赛中得到了第四名。
