Pierre de Coubertin Medal
The Pierre de Coubertin medal is awarded to people who exemplify the spirit of sportsmanship in Olympic events or through exceptional service to the Olympic movement. Only one American has received the medal: Spencer Eccles, the chief organizer of the 2002 winter games in Salt Lake City, Utah.
