Allied Medal Displays Product Review + Giveaway

I’ve been looking for a triathlon themed method to display some of my race medals for quite some time. I wanted a wall hanger that looked classy, held at least 20 medals and captured the spirit of triathlon. It seemed like every website I visited that sold medal wall hangers just wasn’t what I was looking for. They were either too corny, looked cheap or didn’t have a triathlon themed hanger. I’d reached the point where I considered commissioning someone to make one for me or attempt at making one myself. Gulp!

I recently googled the phrase, SWIM BIKE RUN, to see what product I could spend my money on next and BAM! Lo and behold there was a nice and shiny triathlon themed medal wall hanger in the search results. It was just what I was looking for! How had I missed it?! The hanger is cut steel and looked great. The hanger simply stated, SWIM.BIKE.RUN.PLAY! I love that phrase and knew I had to have it asap. (

My shipment came quickly and I opened it up like a kid on Christmas morning. I stepped back and looked at my order. I was impressed. It looked even better in person. I picked it up and felt the steel in my hands. I could tell it was well made and wouldn’t break or fall apart. After all it is laser cut from heavy gauge stainless steel!

It only took 15 minutes to hang on my wall. I had to drill 5 holes in my wall to anchor it but it was well worth it. The instructions to assemble it were very easy to follow. I pulled out my shoebox full of race medals and started hanging them. I own the 22” inch display with 1 bar and retails for $50 (plus shipping). It holds around 15-20 medals without them looking cluttered.  The great thing about the company who makes this hanger, Allied Medal Displays is that they offer the option to add 1-2 more bars on the hanger to double or triple the medal hanging capacity.

After I finished adding my medals to the hanger I let out a long whistle. It looked great! Overall I am very pleased with how it turned out; the price, the ease in installation, the quality and the look. Two thumbs up!
