With the 2014 Sochi Olympics well underway, we bet you’re wondering if you’ve got what it takes to be an Olympian. Talent aside, the cost of being an Olympian is staggering. One could say you could easily get into debt if you’re not careful. In this infographic, we’ve broken down the average cost of being a senior level figure skater on an annual basis. Keep in mind, these skaters have trained for decades to where they are now. While many receive endorsement deals and other forms of payment, others pay for all expenses out of pocket, just for the glory of the Olympics. Interesting credit counseling fact, right?
This explains why many athletes’ parents have to take extra jobs, take out second mortgages on their homes, or take out serious loans from the bank to fund training for the Olympics. Is it worth it? That’s for you to decide as you tune in over the next few weeks.
