It is a bit unfair to compare an Olympic medal in terms of rupees. An athlete works day-in and day-out, without taking a break to win it. In a matter of seconds, all the hopes are crushed if he or she commits a single mistake. A win, on the other hand, registers him or her in the history books forever. This is how much it means to the athletes taking part in the Olympics.
This might be one reason that there is no monetary award that comes with these Olympics’ medals. Because a medal in Olympics has emotions attached to it. However, different countries offer different rewards to their winning athletes, which is quite fair. While there are some countries which offer massive rewards to their countries, there are others which offer very less in terms of money.
Here’s how much different countries offer their Olympic champs!
