Tokyo gold winners to get Rs 75 lakh from IOA


The IOA Advisory Committee has recommended that silver medal winners will be presented Rs 40 lakh, while the bronze winners will get richer by Rs 25 lakhs.

“It also recommended a sum of Rs. 1 lakh to each athlete representing the country at the Tokyo Olympic Games,” IOA said in a statement.

The IOA has also acknowledged the suggestions of its advisory group that a bonus of Rs. 25 lakh be given to each participating NSF and a further support of Rs 30 lakh to each medal-winning NSFs. Besides, a support of Rs.15 lakhs each will be received by other member National Sports Federations.


“This is the first time IOA is giving reward to medal winners and medal producing NSFs to such an extent,” IOA secretary general Rajeev Mehta said.

The advisory group also recommended a pocket allowance of USD 50 per day to each member of the Indian contingent for their actual days of stay in Tokyo. IOA also said that the member State Olympic Associations “will also receive a sum of Rs 15 lakh each, as a contribution from IOA towards developing sports infrastructure in the states and in encouraging more athletes to take up sports.”

Mehta said: “The Indian Olympic Association understands the hardships faced by the athletes and the federations and felt that support and aid is required by all National Sports Federations, State Olympic Associations and most importantly the athletes, after having overcome the hurdles and hard times during the coronavirus pandemic since March last year.”
