The USOC - United States Olympic Committee - which is a private entity separate from the US Gov't - pays athletes for medals - $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. Some athletes are invited to train at the US Olympic training facility run by the USOC and all expenses are paid, but the athlete must adhere to a strict training schedule and rules of the facility.
