A Chinese athlete who won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics is attracting attention by posting a picture on social networking service (SNS) saying that the surface of the medal has been peeled off.

Zhu Shaying, the Olympic women’s trampoline gold medalist, shared three photos on Weibo on the 23rd, saying, “The gold medal has come off.”

If you take these photos, you can clearly see the peeled-off part (red circle) in the upper left corner of the gold medal.

“I didn’t do it on purpose,” he said. “I rubbed the gold medal thinking there was a stain.”

In fact, in these photos, there is a scene where it looks like Zhu Shaying is wiping the stain with his thumb, and the fact that the peeled area has gotten bigger can be confirmed.

Chinese netizens said, “This is an insult to the gold medal, and Japan should replace it with a new one.”

Previously, Japan carried out the ‘2020 Medal Project’ for a sustainable and eco-friendly Olympics. From 2017, electronic devices were donated from the public for two years, and a gold medal was made using recycled materials.

According to the Global Times, the English sister newspaper of China’s state-run Global Times on the 24th, the Japanese Mint, which manufactured the Tokyo Olympic medals, said, “We have not received any reports of related problems (gold medals come off, etc.),” ​​and “we will proceed with further investigation.”

On the other hand, the gold medal awarded to athletes in this Olympic Games can be said to be a ‘silver medal’ in terms of materials alone. This is because it is made by plating 6g of gold on 556g of pure silver.
