They win MEDALS, not money. Sure the medals are worth some money.

Oh ah? International sport, like American policy in Mexico, is about the sale of drugs and pretend competition. The main thin is not at any time to get it mixed up with real sport.

Your ideas are pretty bizarre.

Define "real sport".

Non-professional athletic activity organised for enjoyment rather than to score off others by, for instance publishing silly pictures.

Shouldn't actors and actresses also devote themselves to entertainment without pay?

How about artists and musicians? They provide no material goods.
