Each country awarded it's own medals. The list depends on what country you are referring to.
i think they are awarded for each medal... i think they are awarded for each medal...
It depends on the number of events that year.
Olympic medals are awarded in a ceremony following the completion of each event, immediately following the certification of the results by the judges.
there are 302 events some have 2 bronze medals instead of a playoff and teams and pairs are awarded medals to each member
There were three medels- Bronze,Silver and Gold
As far as I know, when a sport is a "demonstration sport" medals are awarded by the International Federation governing that sport, and not by International Olympic Committee (IOC). A demonstration sport has not yet achieved "full medal" status, therefore the athletes are not competing for official Olympic medals. For example, in 1988 (Seoul, Korea) and 1992 (Barcelona, Spain), Taekwondo was a demonstration sport, and I believe the medals (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) were provided by the World Taekwondo Federation. By 1994, the IOC had approved Taekwondo as a full medal sport, but not until the 2000 Summer Games (Sydney, Australia). In 1996 (Atlanta, Georgia, USA), Taekwondo had reached its allotted two times as a demonstration sport, and was only allowed to participate as an "exhibition," therefore I do not believe they had any medals awarded above the National level of competition in each country (not sure about that).
There will be 302 gold medals, and 906 medals, in total, to be awarded in the 2008 Olympics. Obviously they make more individual medals to hand out than that because each person of team events get a medal....
962 medals including 302 gold medals 304 Silver Medals and 356 bronze medals Below are the reasons for more than the 302 event medals for the Silver and Bronze medals. Two silver medals (and no bronze) were awarded for second place ties in both the men's 200 metre freestyle swimming and the men's 100 metre butterfly swimming events. In boxing, judo, taekwondo, and wrestling, two bronze medals are awarded in each weight class. Two bronze medals were awarded for a third-place tie in the men's keirin cycling race; three bronze medals were awarded for a three-way third-place tie in the men's high jump. There were many more medals distributed as every athlete on a pair or team receives a medal event if they were only part of the qualification process and not in the final event. There were over 500 athletes that received Gold, Silver, or Bronze Medals as members on the Men and women's team events of Basketball, Field hockey, Football, Handball, Indoor Volleyball & Water polo for just those 12 events
3 ,gold( now gilded silver) ,silver & bronze
Yes, should there be a tie there can be multiple medals awarded. This happened in the women's 100 meter dash at the 2008 Games in Beijing when Sherone Simpson of Jamaica and Kerron Stewart of Jamaica tied for second place, each running the race in 10.98 seconds. Both ladies were awarded silver medals. In this instance, no bronze medal was awarded since the next position after these two ladies was 4th place. Should there be a tie for 1st place and two gold medals awarded, no silver medal is awarded but a bronze medal is awarded.

it depends if you mean all athletes or just one sport if its one sport its judged by different things for each sport like style in skating, or if you won the last game of the tourney in hockey you would get gold. If you mean by country than yes if you had the most medals you would win the games.
Each event only gives one gold, one silver, and one bronze. Some gives two bronze (boxing).
a gymnastics competition is when gymnasts come to a certain place and compete against each other. They will be scored from 0.0 to 10.0 on the events beam, bars, floor, and vault. Then at the end of the competition, the gymnasts are awarded with medals. a gymnastics competition is when gymnasts come to a certain place and compete against each other.

Swimming relays are comprised of 4 swimmers. These 4 swimmers compete as one called a relay team. Medals are awarded to relay teams that finish 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and each member of the relay team gets a medal.
There is only one gold medal award in each Olympic Decathlon to the decathlon winner. There has been 25 gold medals awarded in the 24 Olympic Games that included the Decathlon competition. The reason why there is one more gold medal awarded than actual events competitions is because in 1912 there were co-gold medalists.
Tennis made its debut at the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896. It was played at the Olympics until 1912 and then discontinued. Tennis returned to the Olympics as a demonstration sport (no medals awarded) in 1968 and 1984 and regained full status in 1988 and has been played in each Olympics since.
The website for DatabaseOlympics gives information on Portugal's Olympic athletes.Specifically, the first screen for Portugal lists the sport and the number of each medals for that sport (gold, silver, bronze). Selecting the sport opens a window that gives the year/specific event/athlete/result/medal for that sport. Selecting the athlete's name from that window opens another window that lists all years that the athlete medalled, along with the athlete's age for each year, each sport, each specific event, each medal, and all results.
On wikipedia it does not tell the first sport they won a medal in, only how many medals they have won each time they participated in the Olympics. Below is a link that can tell you all of that information.
