Best Answer

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.
