Sell Your Bronze 1924 Paris Olympics Medal

Nearly 3,100 athletes from 44 nations competed in the 1924 Summer Olympic Games hosted in Paris, France. Many are familiar with the 1924 games as the Academy Award-winning film “Chariots of Fire” is based on the stories of English runners Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell who competed in the 1924 Olympics. Tennis appeared for the last time in the 1924 games before taking a 64 year hiatus until the Olympics of 1988. The Olympic motto Citius, Altius, Fortius, which is Latin for “Faster, Higher, Stronger” was first introduced at the 1924 Games.
