Best Answer

Bronze, silver, or gold medals are awarded by the Olympic committee, but various countries offer 'bounties' for medals in various categories. $25,000.00 per gold medal is offered by the US, for example. Getting one's image posted upon untold numbers of boxes of "Wheaties" is, of course, another incentive.
