1.34% of each medal is gold so 6 grams of gold into 46 gold medals equals around 5000 buckaroos...no wonder your country is so in debt...no one in their right might would take a gamble like that LMFAO!

Each medal is valued at more than $500, silver is about $350.

PLUS the country doesn't make the medals, the Olympics does.

U.S. Olympic athletes DO NOT get taxed on the medals (except their value added to the other $$). They DO have to pay tax on the money they get; $25K for a gold, $15K for Silver, $10k for Bronze.

They pay tax as if it's earned income, so deductions DO apply. AND expenses, and all that.

envious much?

these are private citizens and many of them are barely 20, almost children

why the fuck can't you be happy for them?

what a nasty, petty bunch Canadians have become

I know two families over the years who have had a child on an olympic team, and they received almost nothing except in the very last year

families and athletes work their asses off, get up at 4 in the morning to train, to drive to training, to drive days away for coashing, they spend every dime, and they manage to do it with almost no federal support

most of the funding comes from the family and sometimes local organizations

there are athletes of every color and background at this latest olympics, and many of them are deep in debt in order to get their chance at the gold

why can't you be happy for them?

the hate Canadians are showing for the US wins at the olympics is just embarassing

I'm proud of these kids, happy they achieved their dream, glad that years of training and hard work paid off

Bad sportsmanship is nothing to be proud of AC

The Gov't shouldn't' be spending a penny on the Olympics... and for the most part it doesn't! So, the medals contributed nothing to our national debt.

So OP, your point isn't really all that relevant to our debt. Still good post.. I mean, who would have thought that a non-profit would be spending that much money on $625 trinkets.

Op,

I fail to see your point canadian perhaps your socialist outlook has transgressed too far into hyping that everyone is a winner to bother trining those who with some support can bring home the gold.

Spend nothing on your athletes training and you end up like canada bringing up the rear with one lousy gold medal.

The athletes do not compete for the medals, they compete to be the best, to push themselves to the limits of their potential. Sure, they want the gold medal, not for the actual gold, but for the recognition of being the worlds best at their sport. It has nothing to do with $ for the athletes, it's about competition and dedication.
 Quoting: AmericanInfidel


I disagree, if your country took away the bounty they pay each athlete for each medal won then you could say what you said and have a good chance of being right,until then,you paid 200 million dollars for some silver,which is what the majority of each medal is made from. Have a good day.
