The modern Olympic Games (French: Jeux olympiques[1]) are the leading international sporting event featuring summer and winter sports competitions wherein thousands of athletes variously compete. The Olympic Games are considered the world's foremost sports competition with more than 200 nations participating.[2] The Olympic Games are held every four years, with the Summer and Winter Games alternating by occurring every four years but two years apart. Their creation was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894. The IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement, with the Olympic Charter defining its structure and authority.

The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th and 21st centuries has caused several changes to the Olympic Games. Among these adjustments are creating the Winter Games for ice and winter sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with a disability, and the Youth Olympic Games for teenage athletes. The IOC has adapted to economic, political, and technological advancements, shifting the Olympics from pure amateurism, as envisioned by Coubertin, to allow participation of professional athletes. The growing importance of mass media created the issue of corporate sponsorship and commercializing the Games. World wars caused the 1916, 1940, and 1944 Games' cancellings. Large boycotts during the Cold War limited participation in the 1980 and 1984 Games.

The Olympic Movement comprises international sports federations (IFs), National Olympic Committees (NOCs), and organizing committees for each specific Olympic Games. As the decision-making body, the IOC chooses each Games' host city, and organizes and funds the Games according to the Olympic Charter. The IOC determined the olympic program, which comprises the sports to be contested at the Games. There are several Olympic rituals and symbols; e.g., the Olympic flag, torch, and opening and closing ceremonies. Over 13,000 athletes compete at the Summer and Winter Olympic Games in 33 different sports and nearly 400 events. The first, second, and third place finishers in each event receive Olympic medals: gold, silver, and bronze, respectively.

I read somewhere that Silver Medalists are actually less happy than Bronze Medalists. I mean, it sort of makes sense. The Bronze-winners are just happy to win anything, while the silver medalists are like "**** I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN GOLD."

Whenever someone wins bronze, people are just glad they placed.   
But whenever someone wins silver, people are like,   
"So... what happened?"

That, and the Bronze medalists have more time to accept their loss. When you look at Silver medalists on the podium, it's usually shortly after the final event of whatever sport it is. They've just lost being the best in the world. Whereas the bronze medalists had a longer time to simply accept that they may not have one, but they're still awesome.

Although, sometimes the gold winner is so supreme you're just thrilled you got to win the silver, and not lose the gold.

Well, for team sports, which work in a playoff-like bracket. An example is in this years men's hockey. If USA gets bronze, they won a game, so they'd be happy. If Russia gets silver, they would have had to lose to get it.

TL;DR-Silver=lose, bronze=win.

But are Gold medal is covered by the gold, or is the metal an alloy?

"So, how gold medals appear so gold when they are mostly made of silver metal? The answer lies in a process called gilding, which is not an uncommon technique in creating sports trophies and medals.

Through the gilding process, gold powder or gold leaf, is applied to another surface metal, stone or wood to create the appearance that the object is made out of gold instead of the other material. There are a variety of gilding methods, but the result of each is the same — an object that appears purely golden."

tl;dr- It's covered with gold, like frosting on a cake.

still though, the no 1. would still get attacked because the werewolf doesn't get in contact with the silver right? it's closed off on all sides by the gold.

Gold = 1 gold ore
Silver = 1 silver ore
Bronze = 1 copper + 1 tin

But silver is only effective when you wound them with it it.

It's not like carrying silver will just ward werewolves like garlic wards vampires.

But what if a warewolf had a silver ring piercing in his nipple at one time, would that not make him immune, kinda like a vampire and syphillis?
