Dolphins, lederhosen, clams and cows – weird and wonderful sporting trophies

Trophies come in all shapes and sizes.

Take the Ashes urn, for example, at 11cm high, and then compare it with the Indy 500’s Borg-Warner Trophy, which comes in at 163cm tall.

Then there is the tree-shaped Paris Masters trophy, and the Qatar Masters’ ‘Golden Clam’.

How about a dolphin balancing a ball on its nose? That’s what Ukrainian tennis player Dayana Yastremska is taking home from the Thailand Open.

On Sunday, the 18-year-old world number 47 was presented with the trophy after beating Australia’s Ajla Tomljanovic 6-2 2-6 7-6 (7-3) in Hua Hin for her second career WTA singles title.
