    Re: More important? Money or Medal

    Aiming for a medal while eschewing the money could be a course to having neither of them.

    Not that many runners get medals.

    And I notice those of you picking medals justify this as a course to having money, i.e. the money being the end result, the medal only being a way to (hopefully) obtain it.

    What if it was a choice between one OR the other.

    Would you take a medal or the money?

    I'd take the money, and keep running.

        Sorry .

        In today's world, I would say Gold medal.
        You can spend the money, but you can't lose a Gold medal.

        Unless you're either Ben Johnson or Jim Thorpe (who actually had his medals returned after his death)
