Proposal from

Richard Meredith-Hardy, CIMA President

Proposal title

Language on FAI medals

Existing text

none

New text, Option a

S10 4.7.7 The text engraved on each FAI medal shall be in either French or English according to the preference of the organizers.

New text, Option b

S10 4.7.7 The text engraved on each FAI medal shall be in either French or English according to the preference of the organizers and shall include the class name (S10 1.5.1).

Reason

It is something of an enduring mystery why the 'caption' engraved on FAI medals awarded at CIMA Sanctioned Cat. 1 events is always in French. Indeed this has led more than once to confusion when medals have actually been distributed at medals ceremonies where the hosts have not been familiar with that language. 

It therefore seems reasonable that the host nation should have a small choice of language it best understands (option 1), or alternatively (and additionally), the class names as used in S10 are used where possible as well (option 2).

There seems to be nothing about the text or language to be used on FAI medals in FAI Statutes, Bylaws or the Sporting Code, this proposal is therefore not contradicting any other text.
