Something that perhaps you did not know is that TECOS Tool and Die Development Centre Slovenia reverse engineered handmade sculptures that contributed to the creation of the statue itself which was given to winners of the Sports Personality of the Year Award.

The SIJ Group is one of the sponsors of the biggest sporting event and took the initiative to produce the statues. With TECOS' reverse engineering knowledge and services, the SIJ Group (companies included in the group are also members of TECOS toolmakers) was stood on the sidelines watching as the handmade sculptures were transferred into 3D-computer formats that were the basis for the casting tools.

The production process of the statues:
