"Horse God" Xiao Qin Appreciation Post

My favorite male gymnast.  There’s just something extra special about a military man competing for his country and won. ^ ^

Money, Home, and a Recreation Center for Dengdeng ^.^

The Lixin County government has awarded our Olympic champion Deng Linlin a brand new apartment and ¥100,000 RMB (approx. $16,000 USD) for her achievements.  In addition, they are building a new city recreation center that will be named after her. Great for Deng Linlin ^.^ 

Keep in mind that all these are just from the county government.  The Anhui provincial government awards about ¥500,000 RMB (approx. $80,000 USD) for a gold medal (If Deng were to come from bigger provinces like Shandong, that figure shoots up to ¥1,000,000 RMB). Plus the cash prizes from the national government that is also estimated around ¥500,000 RMB per gold medal. Not to mention all the corporations and nonprofit foundation award prizes, advertisement income, media appearances, exhibition tours, and business sponsorships that comes with the gold medal.  Olympic champions are raking in good money for themselves. Although the team takes a commission on the earnings and taxes will take out another chunk of it.  I’m guessing by the time they tally up the total, gymnasts only get to receive about 50% of that… >_<
