What do you think about State Sponsored athletes?
What do you think about State sponsored atheletes in the olympics? Mainly the pacific rim countries, In Europe I've noticed many of the atheletes play their sports professionally. Where as in the US many of our atheletes are not professional and we do not have leagues for many of these sports.What are your thoughts about this?
Wouldn't you class a college scholarship based on athletic ability a sponsorship?
Many countries develop sports program's for political and social reasons. Many GB athletes and national federations benefit from lottery money and sponsorship as the sports are often performed for love and not money.
The US has sports which are professional which are amateur in some countries- Baseball for instance was an Olympic sport.
It would help level the playing field between athletes from different countries with different views of state sponsorship.
