Achievement Awards Glossary

When you add a run or ride to Strava, you may be awarded “Achievements” for outstanding performances on the segments you traverse. There are a few types of Achievements.

Crown — King/Queen of the Mountain (KOM/QOM) or Course Record (CR)


The crown represents total segment dominance! They are awarded to users who set times that slot them on top of Overall leaderboards at time of upload.

Your current All-Time KOM/QOM/CR crowns are stored in a special list on Strava for your reference. "My KOMs" or "My QOMs" is a page stored under "KOMs/CRs" or "QOMs/CRs" accessed from your Profile page on the web.

Trophy — Overall Top 10 Placement (All-Time & Annual)


A trophy is awarded when you place at the top of a segment leaderboard filtered by gender. Trophies exists for 2nd place to 10th place for all-time efforts.

Medal — Personal Top 3 Placement 


Medals are awarded for your all-time best personal performances on a segment. If you clock a new best time for yourself on a segment, you'll receive a solid "PR" medal. Likewise for your second fastest and third fastest times.

Note: A user is not eligible for a PR medal until he or she has matched the segment at least two times.
