They win gold medals (worth US$600) if they are first, silver (worth US$325) if they are second, and bronze (worth US$3) if they are third. Each countries' Olympic federation decides on a cash prize for their athletes (ranging from US$1million for gold in Singapore to no cash prizes in Great Britain)
