What is the value of an Olympic gold medal?

According to the Olympic Charter, the gold and silver medals must each be made of at least 92.5 percent pure silver and the gold medal must be gilded with at least six grams of gold.

The price of gold changes daily. Assuming there's six grams of gold in each medal, at 31.1 grams per troy ounce, that is about 0.2 troy ounces. With gold at $1100 per troy ounce, the value would be about $212.

The remainder of the gold medal is made out of silver. The price of silver also fluctuates, but at an average of $14.50 per troy ounce, and assuming the entire medal weighs 500 grams, the remaining silver in the gold medal hovers around $230, bringing the total value to around $450.

Additional facts: The Beijing 2008 medals also include Jade for the first time, which could impact the value. The 2010 Vancouver medals are the largest in Vancouver history, weighing at about a pound each.

See related links for a Wall Street Journal article on the worth of Olympic medals.

Why have the rules of soccer changed today?

One of the main changes, the offside rule, was introduced to prevent strikers from 'goal hanging'. Before the rule was introduced, players could basically stand by the oppositions goal and wait for a long pass, making it easier to score. The offside rule states that a player cannot participate in play if he is behind the second last opposition defender (which may include the opposition goal keeper) and ahead of the ball at the moment the ball is passed. If he does, an indirect free kick is awarded to the opposition team. This rule means that if the defenders are, for example, by the half way line, an opposing striker can't goal hang because, when he receives a pass, he will be in an offside position.

Can a baseball game end in a tie?

Yes, in Japan. In American professional sports, no, a game is not complete if both teams have the same number of runs.

AnswerYes, if a game is called off due to weather, or a power outage, or something like that. If the game is important to a pennant race, it can be made up, but if not, it would be left as a tie. The stats would still count, though.

As of February 2007 the rules committee has made the following changes to the rules in the MLB as it pertains to games ending in ties.

"Beginning this season, when a game is tied in the bottom of the fifth inning and is called because of weather, it will be suspended and resumed before the next scheduled game between the teams at the same ballpark.

If there are no more games between the teams at the same stadium, the game will be resumed when the teams meet at the visitor's ballpark.

If it is the final scheduled game between the teams, it will be replayed if it is needed to determine a postseason berth."

What are the rules on overtime in FIFA soccer?

FIFA games last 90 minutes, and the clock also never stops. The referee keeps track of time that is wasted and adds it on at the end of each half. These few minutes are known as injury time or stoppage time. They usually last 2-5 minutes.

There is also 30 minutes of extra time, or 15 minute at each half added in overtime.

In overtime in pro football are there two overtimes or does it just end after one as a tie?

Depends on the time of year in which the game is played... regular season games have one overtime period (sudden death, first to score wins) and if at the end of the period (full 15 minutes, each team gets 2 timeouts) the score is still tied, it's over. Tie ball game. Playoff games on the other hand cannot end in ties... they'll continue playing indefinately until someone finally scores. (but the odds of 2 playoff caliber teams not being able to kick a field goal in a 15 minute period to seal a win in OT prevent us from seeing a double overtime game!)

This answer is absolutely right. I'd just add that in postseason, overtime is played just like a brand new game. Therefore, each team gets a full 3 timeouts instead of 2, and there would even be a halftime period if the game was tied after the end of 2 overtimes. No game has ever gone beyond a second overtime, though.
