Best Answer

They receive no money from the Olympics. However a win will certainly lead to some sort of endorsement deal with advertisers. The only consideration they receive is the medal. If you consider the value of the gold medal as "payment", it is worth something, but not much.

The gold medal is not solid gold. The value of a gold medal, made according to Olympic Charter specifications, which contains 6 grams of gold with the rest being silver is about 500 to 600 US dollars depending on the market prices of gold and silver.

The International Olympic Committee does not award cash prizes to the winners. Many countries, however, do offer cash prizes and other incentives to medalists. In 2012, American competitors who won Olympic medals were rewarded in cash by the US Olympic Committee. Gold medal winners received $25,000, Silver medal winners received $15,000, and Bronze medal winners received $10,000. However, the real money is earned through commercial endorsements. Some Olympians get paid a performance bonus from sponsors for winning a medal and may sign commercial endorsements that could wind up paying them millions.
