Singaporean gold medalists receive a $753.000 bonus, British athletes get nothing

The four members of the US freestyle relay team will each recieve a bonus of US$25.000

The glory of winning a gold medal is a massive incentive for athletes competing in Rio but the impressive bonuses on offer add another more lucrative dimension to the games. The size of the bonus on offer varies hugely by country. For example, British athletes do not receive bonus for winning a gold medal whereas American competitors get $25,000 for every gold they take home.

Successful athletes from Singapore are awarded a prize of $1 million Singapore dollars, not a bad day at the office at all. Indonesia offers its successful Olympians around $380,000, according to Fox Sports Australia.
