Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton had some fascinating information to share with us about the cost of training an Olympic figure skater today.
“For a high level skater, I’ve heard everything from $25,000-80,000 a year!” Scott said, citing the cost of sponsors, choreographers and costume designers now required for training. “It can get out of control!” he said.
“When I competed for my first time at the Olympic level with a sponsor, it was $8,000!” Scott reflected.
