The Gold Medalist achievement is, contrary to popular belief, the very hardest achievement in the game. To get this achievement, you must get:

All S Ranks in Action Stages
All S Ranks in Action Stages on Hard Mode
All S Ranks in Town Stages
All Silver Medals Found in both Action Stages and HUB Towns

Essentially, this is the "Legend of Soleanna" achievement, but you have to collect the Silver Medals as well.

For the S Ranks in ACT stages, the best advice that can be given is to defeat every enemy in sight, and collect as many rings as you can. A quick time is also important, but these almost always must be done. If you're hit and lose your rings, you may want to restart if your overall score isn't that high.

Also, if you're playing as Sonic, you can purchase the Red Gem from the many stores in the Story Mode. The Red Gem slows down the playing area just slightly, and slows down your countdown clock by a large amount, allowing you to get a nice time bonus when you finish a level.

For the Silver Medals, I recommend using ShadnicK826's videos on YouTube. He has videos for every stage and HUB town Silver Medals, and is used by most people going for a 1000/1000. A link to his first video is included in this solution.

Hope this helped. Good luck, achievement hunters. =)
