After the Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, the topic of wh。ether。 it is fair for at。hletes to。 pocket la。rge su。ms of money from their Olympic participation is arousing more and more interest from the public.
Those who support high salaries for these athletes may offer som。e of the f。ollowing reasons. Firstly, just as the old sayi。ng goes, “no pain, no gain.” The athletes in the Olympic Games must have unde。rgone painstaking physical and psycholog。i。cal training. It naturally follows that they deserve commensurate compensation for these sacrifices。. What’s more, they make significant contributions to a positive international reputation for。 t。heir home countries. This gives them yet anoth。er reas。on to deserve mon。etary compen。s。ation in。 addition t。o the advantages already offered them。. The main reason that the naysay。ers often have is that they do little to boost the nation。al economy directly, and thus should not rece。ive compensation of the monetary kind. Even the naysayers admit, however, that these athletes do offer a lot of positive enco。uragement to young people in persuading them to participate in physical activity.
As for me, I side with the supporters of greater compensation for Olympic athletes. The more we give, the more we de。serve to have. On account of all the time and。 energy they spend in rigorous training, I firmly believe that they should get hi。gh salarie
