Do you know Why Olympians bite their medals while posing for photograph ?

” As we all know that the craze of Olympics has gone viral around the world . While several medals are being awarded to various Olympians for various sports around the world, Have anyone wondered that why most of the Olympians bite on their medals during their victory pose? ” 

No specific reason has been found or proved regarding the biting of Olympic medals. According to tradition, people used to bite gold to leave their tooth impressions as gold bieng one of the most melleable metals gains depressions of the teeth when bit.

Since then it has been a tradition of giving a pose biting the medal while getting a picture clicked. Although the medals nowadays are just gold plated and are not made up of pure gold, still everyone tries to keep the tradition going and they give the same pose even with the silver and bronze medal as well.

However, an interesting fact here is that this year’s medals contain a mere 1.34 per cent of gold. The gold medal contains maximum percentile of silver. So biting them now won’t make much sense in authenticating the metal.

The other reason reason we can think of is just that the Olympians think they look good doing that for giving an ionic victory pose.

It is actually craze of the photographers and they force the athletes to bite their medals while posing.

Photographer be like: Bite please!!!
