Reading around I discovered a couple of tidbits. (1) The US Olympic Committee pays gold medal winners $25,000. The US Soccer corp or whatever will give the women's soccer team $1.5 million to split as they wish. - - - (2) South Korea has mandatory military service for males. But, if they win a gold or silver in the Games, males are exempt from that service.
