Cadets Competition - Weird Medal System

I went to a cadet drill and band competition this week-end and it was really interesting to see all those people doing their best to win.

I didn’t really like the “medal” system they used though. There was the regular “Gold/Silver/Bronze” category but you could also win a “Silver” medal without being second place.

What they used was a point system. If you were within a certain range, you get medal “X”. That system does allow everyone to have a medal but it kind of remove the real worth of having one. If you’re not good enough, you shouldn’t win anything.

A true lost is always better than a false victory.
