Are olympic gold medal winners paid a cash prize also,how much?


What music did Shizuka Arakawa skate to in her long program?

The Olympic Games offer no prize money for winning any medals.

That being said, several countries have traditionally offered cash prizes to members of their teams that medal, not to mention the cash benefits of sponsorship offers many athletes who win gold will receive.

Why do people think this isnt a sport?

I think so, but the amount i think varries on what medal theyve won.
