Is there prize money given with olympic medals?

There’s no pay from the IOC (International Olympic Committee) when they win a medal. But many countries Olympic committees pay their athletes for winning medals 다운로드. Among them, The U.S., Russia, Canada, China & Italy and many more countries.

$20K-$50K per gold medal is typical in bigger countries. The smaller countries actually tend to pay more, $50K-$100K, since a single gold is more important to their country 다운로드. Some athletes receive cars, houses and promise of jobs when they retire.

Women of the World Cup

The big games are today:

  • 9am PST – USA vs. France (EPSN)
  • 11:30 PST – Sweden vs. Japan (ESPN)

These games have really been spectacular with so many going to the end 다운로드.

In honor I have selected my favorite women of the 2011 World Cup.

Hope Solo

As the goalie for the USA, Hope presents a dominate aggressive attitude 다운로드. I really think the players are scared of her. It works too because she looks gigantic on screen with those goalie gloves (though she is only 5’9) Serialchart download. Still, she is gorgeous and considered the best goalie in the world.

Josefine Öqvist

Ahh, Josefine 다운로드.

She is more like a sex symbol than an athlete with all her photos and magazine covers (maybe NSFW) 다운로드. Plus, she really seems to be having fun. In this viral video, Josefine shows skin as she trades jersey’s with a guy in the stands, but I can’t tell if she is flirting with him (he is cute) or this is all a stunt:

Regardless, Josefine is a powerful player and a “rapid and unpredictable forward who can decide any game” 문명5 무설치 다운로드.

French Women

Gaetane Thiney, Elodie Thomis and Corine Franco.

All three of them decided to do some stylish nude photographs for Bild magazine 다운로드. Their intention was to alert the French public that games are actually being played. They feel that women’s soccer is ignored and men’s is a spectacle since the Zidane headbutt in the 2006 World Cup Finals 국정원 내 pc 지키미.

It’s really is a cool photo (NSFW) since it doesn’t reveal all and the women look like athletes not plastic surgeries 돈스타브 다운로드.

Mana Iwabuchi

The Japanese Team has a 18 year old “teen phenom” playing for them, Mana Iwabuchi. This girl was born in 1993 다운로드!

This team is definitely my favorite to watch because they show such technical skill on the field (they have to since every team is so much taller than them). Plus, they also have good clean fun:

Final

Ok, since you made it this far I have a link for you (if you’re male). The German women’s team also went all out for their publicity. Posing in the German Playboy (definitely NSFW).
