|I've been watching the Olympics a lot and I like to watch the podium ceremonies. You know who the Gold medal winners are; they are the ones on the highest podium and are in between the Silver and Bronze medal winners.
I believe that the Silver medal is for second place.
I know that the Bronze medal is for third place.
Somewhere along the way, I think that that has changed.
The next time you watch an award ceremony, look at the athletes to the left and right of the winner.
Aren't they the same height?
So, if you can't have the Gold, go for the Bronze. According to podium heights, you're just the same as the Silver anyway.
