The Olympics are now drawing to close, with a lot of money spent and a lot of questions asked. The £11 Billion+ budget has been spent on constructions, infrastructure, organization, and so on. But a lot of people have been asking the same questions. Do the athletes get any of it? The short answer, actually, is no. The money spent by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) goes majorly into organizing the events, dealing with the audience, setting up and decorating the venues, and so on. So the big question is, how do the athletes make money? Where does the money come from and how much are they paid?
