The Olympics started giving out gold medals in 1904 to first-place winners. When the Olympics began in 1896, the awards given to first-place winners were silver medals and those in second place received bronze medals. In the next Olympics of 1900, winners got trophies instead of medals.
1896, the year of the first modern Olympics.
as a matter of fact, it was at the 1904 St. Louis Games that medals for the top three athletes were introduced. From 1986 at the first modern Olympics up until 1904, only the first two placegetters received a medal and it was gold for first and silver for second.
