Athletes running in a hot, humid environment may have an increased risk of heat illness. In the 2004 Olympic Games, American and Australian athletes were provided with ice vests designed to cool their bodies before performance. The vest appeared to be effective in keeping body temperatures down and improving the performance of the marathoners. However, body temperatures have not been reported when the vest was used before an actual competition.
The Olympians are not paid for their sport, per se. They might receive allowances for travel costs, lodging, and sportswear, but for performing in the actual competition, no, they are not paid.

Competition in dreams usually mirrors your actual competitiveness in real life.
No, the Olympic medals are made of actual gold, silver and bronze.
There is only one gold medal award in each Olympic Decathlon to the decathlon winner. There has been 25 gold medals awarded in the 24 Olympic Games that included the Decathlon competition. The reason why there is one more gold medal awarded than actual events competitions is because in 1912 there were co-gold medalists.
