The area has produced more Olympic athletes per head of population than anywhere else in the UK.
Fourteen Olympic athletes have come from the area, which has a population of 13,500.
Strathspey and Badenoch also intends to register its bid to be considered as a potential training camp for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Former athlete and Olympic organising committee chairman Lord Coe unveiled the sculpture - inscribed with the 14 names - on Tuesday.
