    That's true of non-athletes as well.

    How much does an athlete of his stature earn a year? Bolt seemingly made millions.

    Bolt is a massive outlier when it comes to the fame and earnings potential of a track and field athlete. I suspect the income of a world number 1 in another track event does make you wealthy enough if you are from a developing country to perhaps build a small school building in your village. If you are from a developed country you will probably just be making quite a good living.

    There are folks worried that when the athletes start getting a slice of the pie, that minor sports (like track and field) will suffer.
