Prize money for Olympic champions: Belarus better off than Norway?

Belarusian athletes, who’ll win the Olympic Games in South Korea, will receive reasonable money rewards for their sport achievements and hard work.

That is despite the fact that the prize fund was not in demand before 2010. That is when the first medals were gained by Belarusian athletes at Winter Olympics. All in all, Belarusian Winter Olympics received more than one million dollars in total, the majority of the sum, was payed off to them after the Olympics in Sochi.

It is necessary to mention that not all countries pay to Olympic heroes. Taking Norway as an example, athletes there have to find sponsors.
