Hi, Please always provide a meaningful subject line.

Also always include the output of your program,
especially if its an error message - these are
full of useful information.

Since the specs provide the sizes you don't need
all the input() calls, just use the data.
It's much faster to run and test that way.

Where is draw_podium defined?

Check the spelling here? And also, where is draw_third()
defined (or even darw_third)

You can't call functions that don't exist.
They must either be provided by an imported module
or defined by you.
