Olympians cost al­most $2M a head

Calgary Herald - - OPINION -

On Sept. 6 the Cal­gary Her­ald quoted an es­ti­mate for the 2026 Olympic Games of $5.8 bil­lion. On Oct. 20 the Cal­gary Her­ald says the 2018 Win­ter Olympic Games had 2,992 ath­letes and 102 events.

Are we re­ally con­sid­er­ing spend­ing that amount of money on those few peo­ple, which works out to $1,938,502 per ath­lete? Al­most $2 mil­lion per ath­lete? Give your head a shake. Laura Rogers, Cal­gary
