    Actually they bite the gold medal because in 1848 before the gold rush started, James Marshell was building a sawmill for, John Sutter, he found something the size of a pea and was colored yellow. He but it and it was gold. SO LEARN YOUR FACTS RANDOM TVclipR THAT WAS IN MY RECCOMENDED

    Edit: nvm this is the Olympic channel.

    To sum it up... They bite their medals to make sure it’s real gold with other strong metals.

    You would think they would get the right info on why Olympians do it, it was Canadian runner from the 1996 olympics Donovan Bailey who started it at the Olympics.

    Skip all the useless information: they bite them because merchants use to bite coins to tell if it’s real gold

    Funny I always thought bitting into gold was an old gold miners tradition and leaving bite marks was a good sign as pure gold is a very soft metal?

    This guy doesn’t make sense. So gold would be mixed with other metals to be made harder. As we all know gold is one of the softest metals on earth.
    So he says a merchant would test the authenticity of a coin by biting it. If there were teeth marks that would verify it of being an alloy and not gold? That doesn’t make sense. If anything that would authenticate the question of the metal being gold
