No, they get endorsements when they win medals. Several of the people in games have family that have lost or are loosing their homes due to financial hardship. Some parents have spent not only time but money to make sure their son/daughter get the training and coaches they needed to get to this point. Frankly, they are "tapped" out because of it.
