The significance of sports trophies and how they’ve evolved
27th February 2017
Celebrating your achievements in sports is something that has always been accomplished with some kind of reward. Awards and trophies in particular are the most common form of recognition and ours is a company that seeks to produce personalised ones to suit specific accomplishments. With a bespoke service and a considerable range of rewards to choose from, we are the ones to call if you are after something very special.
For anyone who has ever participated in sporting activities, you should understand more than most how glorious and important winning a trophy can be. All the hard work and effort you’ve put in pays off eventually and trophies act as the final reward at the end of it all. Many also consider them the symbol of a well-performed demonstration of a certain deed.
With sports trophies, these are most easily defined as a token or symbol of an outstanding performance or victory in an event. Typically, they are generalised through a miniature statue of sorts, but other models do exist. Depending on the significance of the achievement, they can also be coloured differently, or comprised of individual materials, with gold being the go-to for first place. In the end, every sporting trophy serves as a memento of your personal accomplishments, and no matter the colour or material, they cannot compare to the importance that the award holds for you.
Sports trophies aren’t just exclusive to today’s age however, having taken numerous forms throughout time. In earlier periods, people used the more expensive substances like silver and gold to reward individuals for their courage, bravery and winning characteristics, as they were seen as symbolic. Today, trophy materials aren’t as limited and include plating, aluminium and various metal ores.
At Guns & Bows our massive array of awards and trophies coupled with our ability to create bespoke ones means we can meet any need. We can offer figurines fitted to wooden bases that can be engraved for either perpetual or individual rewards.
Over the years we have provided products to commemorate all kinds of sports, including fishing, shooting activities, archery, polo events, and many, many others. If you are looking to celebrate the hard work and achievement of competitors in a special way, our company can assist you.
