Here are an ungodly amount of Olympic fun facts to bust out at parties to sound smart

by 5 years ago

Did you know that Olympic Gold medals aren’t actually gold? Or that third place finishers once left completely empty handed and ashamed? You will once you get through this blast of Olympic fun facts that’ll blow your mind.

I have to admit, that first tidbit about the gold medal not actually being solid gold kind of made me question my interest in this year’s Olympics. These people train for their whole lives for the opportunity to win one of these and we can’t give them something that’s solid gold throughout? No wonder they bite into the medals whenever they win them. They’re probably concerned one of these years it’s going to be chocolate with gold tin foil.
