Best Answer

Payment for winning Olympic medals varies by country. Some do not pay any money at all.

The United States Olympic Committee pays its medal winners $25,000 to gold medal winners, $15,000 to those who take home a silver and $10,000 for a bronze. Some of the richer U.S. sport federations give additional prize money to their winners as well.

There are many appearances and endorsement deals that generally follow a gold medal winner.
