    Default 500K-1mil $$$ prize for Russian champions is just a start

    Albiev was born in Chechneya. He says President of Chechneya promised $500K to every Olympic champion who is from Chechneya.

    When you say 500,000 dollars, I assume you mean thats how much it would be in American dollars?

    Most of Russian money comes from oil which is bought and sold in American dollars.

    Sweet! I wouldn't mind getting 500K for winning an Olympics, although i'd have to train my ass like crazy. Would they get paid for like winning worlds or like europeans or anything else besides Olympics?

    so is that 500k on top of the initial 500k promised?

    Yes they have a system where a world champion gets $5K every month for a year in addition to some gifts usually somewhere around $100K from the govenment of the regions where they are from.

    Olympic champions also get $5K per month but for the next 4 years, until next Olympics as long as they remain active.

    Does this apply to all regions of Russia or just Checnya?
