14 medals are awarded in olympic gymnastics
The names of the events are inscribed before the games, and there are procedures set up when multiple medals are awarded for a single competition. In some cases, this includes duplicates which can be replaced after being awarded. The individual winners will have their names added to their medals at a later date.
In the modern Olympic games, Gold medals are awarded for first-place, Silver medals are awarded for second-place, and Bronze medals are awarded for third-place. Typically the medals are only plated with the respective metals - the cost would otherwise be outrageous. In the ancient Olympic games, the winners received laurel wreaths.
No, usually their countries pay them for winning their medals.
They Recieve Medals
In the ancient Olympics, no medals were awarded. The first-place winner was given an olive branch to wear on his head. The second and third place winners got nothing.
There are scheduled to be 302 medal events at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. That would mean a minimum of 906 medals will be awarded.
