The correct answer: PODIUM
In sports, a type of podium is used to honor the top three competitors in events such as the Olympics. In the Olympics a three-level podium is used. Traditionally, the highest level in the center holds the gold medalist. To their right is a somewhat lower platform for the silver medalist, and to the left of the gold medalist is an even lower platform for the bronze medalist.
At the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, however, the Silver and Bronze are equal in elevation. In many sports, results in the top three of a competition are often referred to as “podiums” or “podium finishes”. In some individual sports, “podiums” is an official statistic, referring to the number of top three results an athlete has achieved over the course of a season or career. The word may also be used, chiefly in the United States, as a verb, “to podium”, meaning to attain a podium place
