There are different levels of Gold medals. For example, Gold in the men's 100m sprint is better than a Gold in hammer throwing.

In a way it's a shame that some people can even say that they are an 'Olympian' at all. Some obscure member of a woman's handball team can say that she is an 'Olympian' alongside Phelps, Bolt, or Federer. It doesn't seem right, but that's the Olympics.
