I recently got my hands on a CD released at the time of the 1996 Olympics which featured music either composed for, or associated with the Olympic Games. One composition, "Towards a new life" by Czech composer Joseph Suk (1874 - 1935), was described as the Silver Medal winning piece at the 1932 Olympics. This led me to dig into it a little further and Wikipedia turned out to have a reasonable summary of the Olympic Art Completions which were held between (1912 - 1948). During the Classic Era (1920s) the Antwerp, Paris and Amsterdam Olympics all had an artistic component (Although the Paris Olympics either did not have a music competition or no entries were submitted, or they were destroyed...)
The areas medals were awarded in were:
Scenario possibilities relating to any artistic component of the Mythos, especially after 1925 should be obvious.
There is also a trio of articles I have located which came out around the time of the 2012 Olympics
And a comprehensive listing of the winners of art related medals, all of whom have now been struck from the official medal totals.
