us we inspire many athletes to compete for our countries
In today's Olympic Games, the majority of athletes are professionals who are paid to play their sport. In addition, many countries pay their athletes a bonus if they win a medal..
no only if they have their I.D card
no they do not have to pay taxes on their winnings.
Iran have not provided any athletes this year
yes but not as much as america does
All countried pay their Olympic atheletes.
More than 10 countries had only 2 athletes
of course no because they are volunteerring to participate
yes, on every medal they win they have to pay taxes on it.
Olympic athletes don't exactly pay their own way. They get some funding from the U.S. Olympic Committee and from commercial sponsors. They also sign up for commercials. Whatever is left, they have to pay for themselves.
they have to pay lots of money
I think it did
Some of the smaller countries competing at the 2008 Games are Fiji (6 athletes), Monaco (5 athletes), Marshall Islands (5 athletes), Oman (4 athletes), and Liechenstein (2 athletes).
Most Olympic athletes do not get paid for winning at the Olympics. Many of the countries will pay the travel expenses of the athletes. Most athletes are sponsored and will receive bonus money from the sponsors for doing well or medaling at the Olympics. For more information, please refer to the related link.
204 Olympic Committees sent athletes to the 2012 Olympic Games (which includes sovereign countries, unrecognized countries, and territories).
At the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, 45 countries had athletes participating in the sport.
The Olympic Committee awards its athletes, $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. The athletes still have to pay taxes on whatever money they win.
To show they have the best olympic athletes.
10,700 athletes attended from 204 countries
The safety of the athletes and visitors to the Olympic Games in the host countries is a huge concern.
Olympic athletes are amateurs. They do not get paid. Britain does not award cash to medal winners. Other countries in the UK might award cash to their medal winners.
