A trophy is a physical, long-lasting memory of a specific accomplishment, as well as a form of acknowledgment or proof of quality. Trophies are frequently given away during sporting events, ranging from child sports to professional athletics. Medals (or rings in North America) are frequently awarded as prizes or alongside more traditional awards in various sports.

Originally, guns, standards, other property, or human prisoners and body parts (e.g., headhunting) taken in combat were referred to as trophies. These battle trophies celebrated a state’s, army’s, or individual combatant’s military triumphs. Although trophy hunting and human trophy collection by serial murderers are prohibited in contemporary combat, this definition of the word is represented in hunting trophies and human trophy collecting by serial killers.

Since ancient times, trophies have been used to commemorate triumphs. The word trophy, first used in English in 1550, comes from the French trophée, “a prize of war,” from Old French trophee, from Latin trophaeum, “a monument to victory,” a variant of tropaeum, which is derived from the Greek o (Troparion), the neuter of (trophies), “of defeat” or “for defeat,” but more generally “of a turning” or “of a change,” from (top), “a

Trophies were constructed from captured arms and standards on the battlefields of winning wars in ancient Greece and hung from a tree or a big pole shaped like a warrior. These ancient trophies were frequently engraved with a combat narrative and dedicated to several gods. Entire ships (or what remained of them) were occasionally set down on the beach as trophies for naval triumphs. It was considered blasphemy to destroy a prize.


The champions of the Olympic games in ancient Greece were first awarded only laurel wreaths as prizes. The winner was also given an amphora with holy olive oil. The champions of local games were awarded prizes such as a tripod vase, a bronze shield, or a silver cup.

Winners of sports contests in the New World were awarded chalices as early as the late 1600s. The Kyp Cup (crafted by silversmith Jesse Kyp) in the Henry Ford Museum, for example, was awarded to the victor of a horse race between two towns in New England in about 1699. Chalices, for example, were historically made of silver and are linked with athletic activities. Horse race winners, as well as later watercraft and early vehicle race winners, were common beneficiaries of these trophies. The Davis Cup, Stanley Cup, America’s Cup, and several World Cups have all become well-known cup-shaped trophies awarded to sports champions.

The Carlisle Bells, a horse racing trophy initially presented by Elizabeth I in 1559 and 1599, are the oldest sporting awards in the world. Carlisle, Cumbria, United Kingdom, has hosted the race for almost 400 years. The bells are on display at Tullie House, a small museum that includes a range of historic items ranging from Roman legions to the current day.
