|Summer Olympics appearances (overview)|
Gold medals were given at the 1900 Games. A silver medal was given for second place, and a bronze medal was given for first. The International Olympic Committee has retroactively assigned gold, silver, and bronze medals to competitors who earned 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-place finishes, respectively, in order to bring early Olympics in line with current awards.
Pedro Pidal y Bernardo de Quirós (Marquis of Villaviciosa) got a silver medal in live pingeon shooting, but this event is not recognized by CIO as an official event as the winner was given a money award. Nevertheless, the Spanish Olympic Committee does recognize the medal.
