Olympic Games-2024: World Athletics will reward gold medalists


World Athletics announced on Wednesday that it would become the first sports federation to reward gold medalists, paying $50,000 to all athletes who win their event at the Paris Olympic Games.

The overall endowment of the international athletics federation, which will therefore pay a reward at the end of 48 events (the torchbearers having to share the sum of 50,000 dollars), will reach 2.4 million dollars.

It will be taken from the allocation paid every four years by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to World Athletics, which assures in a press release that it will also pay bonuses to silver and bronze medalists from the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in 2028.

The Paris Olympic Games will take place from July 26 to August 11.
