Moscow factory makes Sochi Winter Olympic medals

The next Winter Olympic Games start on 7 February 2014 in the Russian city of Sochi, and a jewellery factory in Moscow is now hard at work with the mammoth task of making the 1,300 medals which will eventually adorn the necks of the winning sportsmen and women.

With every medal taking 18 hours to produce, the factory employees have their work cut out for them.
