The winners will also be rewarded with prize money, the question here arises how much money will they receive? for sure, the amount will be lesser compared to the sponsored one but its still a good chunk of change. All athletes will receive the equal amount of money if it is faster, stronger or higher in their respective event.

But there is a criterion for it; athletes will have to finish within the top eight spot in their event, or else they will have to go home with empty handed.
