You Know What about Medal?

The medals are the certificates issued to the winners of various competitions. They are generally made of metal. The sports competitions generally can be divided into gold, silver and bronze medals corresponding to the first place, second place and third place.


The Olympics, Asian Games and individual world championships all award gold, silver and bronze medals to winners of the competition. However, a long time ago, the winner of the sports competition received a prize, which was a circle woven with olive tree laurel branches, namely the "laurel crown". In 1465, at a recreation event held in Zurich, Switzerland, the winner of the triple jump project was awarded a gold medal. This may be the first time that the winner has not been given the “laurel crown”. At the first Olympic Games held in 1895, the winners were also awarded with “laurel crown”.

It was not until 1907 that the IOC officially issued a resolution on the Olympics gold medals, Olympics silver medals and Olympics bronze medals  for the winners of the Olympic Games at the Executive Committee in The Hague, the Netherlands, which was implemented at the 4th London Olympics.
