Eigth Place Theta Ring for 8th Place Winners at the 2014 Sochi, Russian Winter Olympics
Luckily eight is lucky number in Japan, due to its associations with the eight fold noble path in Buddhism. Unfortunately, the 'th' sound (vibrating like the or soft like thin) does not exist in Japanese.
It is lower case, because upper case is reserved for the Summer Olympics. But upper case and lower case theta are very similar.
Congrats to Mr. Kadono, Yuki!
