您是否一直在看平昌冬奥会？ I love em –并将在大多数晚上收看整集，观看所有戏剧的表演。我认为观看卓越成绩和人们争夺体育运动的最大荣誉总是很有趣。
我一直想知道有多少运动员在训练过程中能够自我支持（他们全职工作吗–还是得到津贴？），或者每个奖牌获得者可以从胜利中获得什么（如果有的话）？所有这些问题以及几年前我提出给我最年长的侄子的几个问题，这些侄子荣幸地执教了就职美国。 越野滑雪 的团队 2010年冬季奥运会 在温哥华。他还是美国滑雪队的成员，曾环游高山比赛。
I only can give you what a US athlete can expect to earn, as each athlete from another country could be quite different. The USOC has a 亲gram called “operation gold”在奥运会上获得金牌。一位在夏季/冬季奥运会上获得奖牌的美国运动员，有望获得37,500美元的金牌，22,500美元的银牌和15,000美元的铜牌。现在，您可以想像，对于某些“pro”参加比赛的运动员。但是，从组织的角度来看，考虑到美国是任何奥运会上获得奖牌数量最成功的国家之一，授予每位奖牌获得者都是一笔巨款！然后，一些运动员将获得代言协议，并附带奖励，奖励将根据他们的表现来支付– i.e. Sponsor “A” will pay “X”运动员：金牌$ 50,000，银牌$ 20,000，铜牌$ 5,000额外$ 50,000…。同样，这些运动员就像独立承包商一样，因此将对他们的全部收入征税。
当然，一些顶级运动员将通过代言获得大部分收入。尽管拥有丰厚代言协议的运动员人数很少。我不算“pro”参加篮球和网球的运动员。大多数不是奥运会的迈克尔·菲尔普斯（Michael Phelps）或Usain Bolt或Lindsay Vonn的运动员都在努力“make a living.”一般来说，大多数参加奥林匹克运动的运动员– i.e. swimming, skiing, rifle, running, archery, etc. don't have long contracts, if any contracts, with companies/sponsors. Most sponsors look to bring on marketable athletes to help 亲mote their brand 2 years prior to an Olympics. Many contracts are signed for 2 or 4 years (Olympic cycles). And because many of these athletes are only seen or known during this one, two week period every four years, their overall marketability is limited. Again, the exceptions are the athletes like Phelps, Vonn, etc.. Endorsements can range all over the place depending on the stature of that particular athlete and their accomplishments and certainly what they will bring to that sponsor in return. So as you can 亲bably guess those can be in the millions or even very small as a couple thousand or less. Many athletes have deals with sponsors that will pay them based on performance –更好地称为基于激励的合同。这是很典型的，因为很明显，运动员做得越好，其知名度就越高，因此在给定的时间范围内，其市场性就越强。
大多数奥运选手如何养活自己？他们是否从事固定工作，然后在晚上或周末训练？如果他们在美国队中，他们可以在培训期间获得报酬吗？我还听说过Home Depot是运动员的重要雇主– is that still true?
这个问题确实存在于整个地图上。一般而言，一般的美国奥运选手将不得不以其他方式自给自足，“make a living.”几乎没有人能在没有帮助或协助的情况下将100％的时间和精力奉献给培训。这就是为什么运动员说他们有“sacrificed”为了获得那枚奥运奖牌而付出了很多。我相信100％是因为许多运动员放弃了各种敞开的门追逐奥林匹克梦想。运动员在同一时间乘搭火车进行各种训练。有些运动比其他运动具有更多的资金，因此那些国家级的管理机构可能会授予补助金，以奖励运动员– but that is rare. I recently read about swimmers on the national swim team are given a $3,000/month stipend so that they can continue to train and race. I'm not sure how other 体育 may operate. I think track may have something similar but I'm not sure. I know for sure skiing does not have that. Athletes, if they are on the national team, can possibly live and train at one of the three Olympic training centers in the US. If they went that route they would have their lodging, and food taken care of as they have dorms at those facilities. San Diego is 亲bably the nicest one, but I think all three have their own strengths since I've spent time at all of them.
As for the 首页Depot 亲gram, I had heard that stopped after 2010, as I don't believe 首页Depot is a US Olympic sponsor anymore. But that 亲gram allowed athletes who went to work for 首页Depot to earn a full-time paycheck (40 hour) while working a part time schedule which allowed for training and competing. I knew a few who did that and seemed to like it, but again, it was a perk to be able to collect a full-time paycheck [while doing part-time work].
