You are still learning the word for gold :) I was confused by this system at first, too, but now I like it. It shows that the word is not limited to gold medals, it's used in other contexts as well.

That looks more like muddy/dirty-spoons to me. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoon_class_theory has gold, silver, bronze, plastic, dirt . . .
