Congratulations, Here's Your Gold Doughnut

The organizers of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy revealed their design for the medals that winning athletes will receive.

In a unique move the centers of the medals are missing, making them look like metallic doughnuts.

The organizers and designers have stated that the design is intended to represent an Italian piazza. In order to represent the open spaces of an Italian town square an Olympic medal now has a gaping hole in the middle?

Seems like an odd (and frankly ugly) design to me.
