Why do Olympic athletes get little medals and kids get big trophies?

What does the gold medal stand for? It’s such a small award for such a big event. Why? Kids get big trophies for winning nothing.

Because the real reward of the Olympics is achieved before any medal is handed out. The real reward is just making it there. Olympic medals signify that sports aren’t just about finishing in the top three, but about commitment, competition, perseverance, fun, and the pursuit of excellence.

Remember parents – it’s not the size of the trophy, but the size of the experience that matters.
