Olympic athletes do not get paid for the medals they win. They do not receive pay for participating.
U.S. medalists receive cash prizes from the U.S. Olympic committee. Gold medal winners receive $25,000, silver medal winners receive $15,000, and bronze medal winners receive $10,000.
They earn $25,000.00 for a gold medal.
None, although there might be money from sponsorships.
A gold medal is really mostly silver. It consists of just over one percent actual gold and is worth about $644.00. (ksdk.com)
The gold medal is 92.5% silver plated with 6 grammes of gold.
They receive no money from the Olympics. However a win will certainly lead to some sort of endorsement deal with advertisers. The only consideration they receive is the medal. If you consider the value of the gold medal as "payment", it is worth something, but not much. The gold medal is not solid gold. The value of a gold medal, made according to Olympic Charter specifications, which contains 6 grams of gold with the rest being silver is about 500 to 600 US dollars depending on the market prices of gold and silver.
The medal is silver with a 6 gram coating of gold.
An Olympic Gold medal is worth 25,000 U.S. Dollars
6g of gold is used as plate, the medal is 92.5% silver.
6 grammes of gold, the medal is nearly all silver (92.5%).
50,000 for a gold in the L A summer x games. I think it is about the same for winter
Depends what country you are from. The United States gives it athletes no money for winning a gold medal.
1%. Believe it or not, an Olympic gold medal is only 1.34% gold. It's actually mostly made of silver.
There is no gold inside of a Purple Heart medal. The medal is made of bronze. However, there is gold enamlel on the heart, but there is no real gold on it.
He gets no money but he just earned a gold medal and the respect from not only his mother country, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, but also the world. Cheers
Probably not that much, because the medal is made out to the swimmer.
You cant earn money in the Olympics. The Olympics pay for a win with fame and a gold medal.
8% only in olympics 2012.
The US Olympic committee pays $25,000.00 to gold medal winners.

i have a celtic centenary medal in green padded case gold coloured not sure if its real gold or plated i am looking to find out how much this could be worth
Modern Olympic "gold" medals are actually mainly silver, plated with gold. Each medal contains at least 6 grams of gold.
Gold medals only contain 1.34% gold (around 6 grams). 92.5% of a gold medal is actually silver while the rest is copper. The silver medal itself is also 92.5% silver, but it has no gold (obviously). Bronze medals are 97% copper, 2.5% zinc and 0.5% tin.there is 5.56g of gold in the gold medal.
They get about $10,000 but the medal is only worth about $650 by itself
They give you a check for 25,000 dollars and a medal.
