See if this helps.
What does this "lining" mean? The translation goes "bronze medal", but doesn't "lining" mean "inner layer of something"?
ex)When Shannon Baker won bronze in women's ski competitions, she hugged first-place winner Hannah Kerney so tightly that she almost knocked her over. Under the cloud cover of Cypress Mountain, Ms.Baker was seeing the bronze lining. By contrast, Canadian skier Jennifer Heil looked discouraged after taking silver...
I'm sorry, but did you mean "bronze medal" or "inner layer"?
