Everybody likes the winner, except us!
It’s like an encyclopedia of World Records but for second-placers instead of first-placers. In the SilverMedals Referencepedia you will find short entries and slightly obsessive depictions of history’s seconds, losers, second actors to play a role, second people to do something notable, actual silver medal winners, sequels, seconds in series, and anything that came after the first. Please check back often for new entries. New ones pop up sporadically.
