This is the podium model for the London 2012 Olympics which will stage 805 victory ceremonies in more than 30 London 2012 venues.

Designed by students from London's Royal College of Art, work has taken place over the past eight months on the podiums and costumes.

Gaetano Ling, Hong-Yeul Eom, Luc Fusaro, Heegun Koo and Yan Lu are the students credited, while Thomas Crisp and Trine Hav Christensen designed the costumes, based on Greek mythology plus British heritage.

Meanwhile the victory bouquet has been designed by UK florist Jane Packer. The bouquet represents the "vibrancy of the Games", as the four sections each hold a different variety of the rose, symbolising Great Britain. Around 4,400 bouquets will be presented to the athletes.
