Glasgow's 2014 Commonwealth Games success is being celebrated 170 miles north in an area with more Olympians per head of population than anywhere else in the UK.
The bronze monument was unveiled in October
Badenoch and Strathspey recently marked this record with the unveiling of a £36,000 bronze monument.
Tim Walker, who convened the group that secured the funding for the monument, said the impact of Glasgow's win would be felt across Scotland.
He said it would provide inspiration to
young sportsmen and women.
Mr Walker, principal at Glenmore Lodge mountain skills training centre, near Aviemore, said: "With the London Olympics in 2012 and the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, we have got a feast of sport before us.
"We will have world-class facilities built across the UK, but really, really importantly to Scotland this will provide a platform to put sport back on the agenda in society.
"Hopefully this will see local authorities and communities create the opportunities for young people to participate in sport which has sadly been eroded in recent times."
Fourteen Olympic athletes have come from the area, which has a population of 13,500.
But at first glance, Badenoch and Strathspey makes an unusual "land of Olympians".
The area is better known for its natural landscape and imposing Cairngorms mountains.
However, it has been on those slopes that the majority of its Olympic athletes have developed their skills.
Eleven of the 14 celebrated on the monument are either skiers or snowboarders.
Mr Walker said: "Those 14 young people from this area went on to represent their country and provided lots of role models for the kids.
"2014 will provide the role models and impetus again."
The 14 on the Aviemore monument are: Ian Finlayson (skiing); Peter Fuchs (skiing); Roddy Langmuir (skiing); Sean Langmuir (skiing); Ewan MacKenzie (Nordic skiing); Louise MacKenzie (Nordic skiing); Ingrid Grant (skiing); Alain Baxter (skiing); Andrew Freshwater (skiing); Douglas Dryburgh (curling); James Dryburgh (curling); Craig MacLean (cycling); Noel Baxter (skiing) and Lesley McKenna (snowboarding).
