There are many reasons behind this but photographers asked Olympians to bite their gold medal just to get the awesome and golden click.
“It’s become an obsession with the photographers,” David Wallechinsky, the president of the International Society of Olympic Historians and co-author of “The Complete Book of the Olympics” told CNN in 2012. “I think they look at it as an iconic shot, as something that you can probably sell. I don’t think it’s something the athletes would probably do on their own.” ( source : www.washingtonpost.com)
