I am proud that there are no financial incentives for Team GB.

 

But to think winning an Olympic gold doesn't bring economic reward for British athletes is foolish! A good Olympic performance will garuntee generous funding for an athlete for the next Olympic cycles, plus widespread media coverage and potential sponsorship is the second hand financial reward.

 

Most Olympic medal winners also get some form of award, either MBE, OBE or CBE, some are even knighted (Sir Chris Hoy, Lord Coe, Sir Bradley Wiggins). So there are lots of rewards apart from a cash payout fir successful athletes.

BBC trailer for the Olympics:

 

The BBC pull out a spectacular Olympic trailer year after year, I can still remember the monkey from Beijing, the eskimo from Vancouver, the stirring music from London and the game of thrones style drama of Sochi.

Sorry if this was asked before (if so, just point me to the relevant link): is there going to be a general Olympic streaming available to just about anyonme, like it was the case in London 2012 with eurovisionsports.tv?
