Close to 2,500 years ago, the Greek messenger Pheidippides created what we regard as the modern-day marathon, running 25-miles from the town of Marathon to Athens. It was a new kind of concept, rewarding the running at the end with his very own race medal. He was running to announce that the Athenian Army had defeated Persian invaders, and as legend has it, he immediately fell over dead after delivering the news from such a demanding race on his body.

Although Pheidippides met a fateful end that day, his valor and race time created the modern day race medal mentality that we know and love today. He invented the concept of being rewarded for his efforts with a running medal, a physical piece of splendor that he could conceivably show people and hang up at home for days after his completed run. Even though many Olympics occurred after that marathon, historians claim that the first modern-day Olympics in 1896 really solidified the worldwide importance of medal distribution at the end of a sporting event.
