Yes, here's an example: Alfred and his father Oscar Swahn (Sweden) - 1912, shooting, team gold.
Oscar is particularly interesting, "At 64 years of age, he became the oldest gold medalist ever, which he still remains up to today."
In case of a tie, the Orange cap would be given to the one who has faced lesser balls to achieve this tied score. The Purple cap, in case of a tie at the top, is given to the one who has taken the wickets in the least amount of balls. This can be seen on the official IPL site Purple Cap standings 2013 (the link gets updated at the end of each game. Refer to ...

After some research, I believe that Wrestling and MMA copied boxing's practice of a championship belt.
Let's start with MMA. When UFC began it followed the accepted practice of awarding championship belts, as WWE and WBO do. UFC simply followed along with it's contemporaries.
The first belt awarded to a fighter was a boxer given in 1810, according to this ...

He wasn't a member of any coaching staffs who won championships, as far as I can tell - he's been a commentator since his retirement, for Fox.
From looking at the picture, there are three superbowl rings, which would be his pinky finger, middle finger, and ...
This is fairly common for sports with knockout rounds, as the required "3rd/4th place" playoff match always feel a bit pointless - see for example boxing or taekwondo (links to 2012 rather than 2016 just because the 2016 hasn't yet reached the medal rounds in those sports). For a non-Olympic example of the same, see Euro 2016 where again there is no 3rd/4th ...
