Best Answer

If you mean what is the prize awarded for coming first in the Olympic games, this would be the gold medal.

The medals awarded in each event are:

Gold - first

Silver - second

Bronze - third In the ancient Olympics, winners were awarded a branch of wild olive. Sometimes the government would allow an Olympic champion to live in a special building that was only for distinguished citizens. Other winners would be exempt from paying taxes for winning an event in the ancient Olympics.
