The medal for the Geilo 1980 Paralympic Winter Games featured a torch superimposed on the three interlocking wheels of the International Stoke Mandeville Wheelchair Sports Federation (ISMWSF).

This was a trend in iconography that can be traced back to the Tel Aviv 1968 Games, with the emblem of the ISMWSF prominently displayed on those medals.
