For every win, Olympians can be taxed thousands of dollars.By Eugene Daniels | August 15, 2016
Ah, Olympic medals. They're shiny, meaningful and apparently expensive as hell for the athletes.
For every medal an American athlete wins, the U.S. Olympic Committee drops some cash. For every gold, you get $25,000. For every silver, $15,000. And for every bronze, you get $10,000.
