Virtually Expanded Medal set to 4th and 5th
Olympic Athletes work hard and sacrifice a much. It is time to expand the medal count again. In the early days of the modern Olympic Games medals were only given out for first, second, and no gold was passed out. First place received a silver medal while second received a bronze medal!
Then at the first American Olympics in St. Louis Missouri gold was finally passed out to first. This was the first expansion of Olympic medals.
Finally since the Olympic flag has five rings - five medals make a harmonious whole for the five continents. This idea is in harmony with the official Olympic Creed:
"THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THE OLYMPICS IS NOT TO WIN BUT TO TAKE PART, JUST AS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE IS NOT THE TRIUMPH BUT THE STRUGGLE. THE ESSENTIAL THING IS NOT TO HAVE CONQUEORED BUT TO HAVE FOUGHT WELL" -PIERRE DE COUBERTIN
