Summer Olympic Medal Count 2012
Statistic Verification
Source: Olympics
Date Verified: 8.4.2012
Nothing means more to an athlete than winning an Olympic medal. Medals are awarded to successful competitors at one of the Olympic Games. There are three classes of medal: gold, silver and bronze. The winner is awarded the gold medal, the runner-up the silver medal, and the third place competitor is awarded the bronze medal. Some countries, as well as supporting all their Olympic athletes, provide sums of money and gifts to medal winners depending on the classes and number of medals won. Medal designs have varied considerably since the first Olympic Games in 1896, particularly in size and weight. Each medal is designed by the hosting country and typically reflects the local style and tradition of that country. Nothing says “winner” like a gold medal hanging over the fire place.
