Rio Olympics medals Olympic gold medal not made of gold

If you were competing in the Olympics you would want to win a gold medal.But the gold medals are  only plated with a small amount of gold.

The gold medal will weigh around 500g,to make them fully gold would have cost around $23,500 in material each.

IN MY OPINION:I agree that the medals are plated not full gold.I wonder if silver and bronze are plated too.
