Rich In Thought - Not Every Olympian Gets A Medal

With the closing of the London Olympics earlier this month, I was impressed with the United States team's 104 medal count leading the way over other countries, with some competitors even receiving multiple medals. While I stress that making the US Olympic team is quite an honor in itself, I also accept that not all of the competing 539 US athletes received a medal – and rightfully so since the games are a highly competitive event.
