First medal can be given to any one of the 10 teams.
Second medal can be given to any one of the 9 remaining teams.
Second medal can be given to any one of the 8 remaining teams.

So Total number of ways = 10*9*8

Yes.
That is correct.
No of ways to award gold medal=10
No of ways to award silver medal = 9
No of ways to award bronze medal =8
Hence, total number of ways= 10*9*8

Cheers !
