Olympic gold medal winners earn cash bonuses — how big depends on their country

Winning a gold medal at the Olympics is a life-changing experience. You can’t put a price on it. But, depending on where you’re from, you might expect a financial windfall.

Statista rounded up the prize money being given out by 12 countries to their winning athletes at the Olympic Games in Rio. The values are converted to U.S. dollars.

If you’re at the top of the podium and the Singaporean national anthem plays — which would be a first: of the four medals the country’s Olympians have ever won, not one has been gold — you’ll walk away with glory and a $753,000 bonus.
