The gold medal is the highest award for achievement in the Olympic Games. The first runner-up wins a silver medal and the second runner-up wins a bronze medal.

The Olympic Medal Nobre Guedes (Portuguese: Medalha Olmpica Nobre Guedes) is the most prestigious annual award given by the Olympic Committee of Portugal (COP) to still-active Portuguese sportspeople which stood out for their sporting results and achievements in the previous year. It is named in honour of the former COP president Francisco Nobre Guedes (19571968) and has been awarded uninterruptedly since 1951.
