ERM what the
Clara Hughes was the first person to win the olympic games
No country can "win" the Olympics.
When you win the Olympics your country wins £75 million pounds
Gold medals were not awarded in the first Olympics of the modern era. The first gold medal was given at the 1904 Olympics; the country to win the first one was the United States.
There were no Olympics held in 2009.
I know that the first Asian to win a gold medal in the men's 400m freestyle was Tae Hwan Park of South Korea who was also the first Korean to win a gold medal for swimming at the Olympics. He also won a silver medal in the 200m freestyle - he was beaten by Michael Phelps. He won these medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
