Joseph Schoolings 750000 Olympic Gold Bonus Raises Questions in the NCAA

While the NCAA remains set on student-athletes maintaining amateur status, the college athletics governing body does allow student-athletes to accept bonuses for winning Olympic medals.

For American athletes, that means making $25,000 in the case of gold, $15,000 for silver and $10,000 for bronze. That means a handful of NCAA eligible swimmers including Lilly King, Ryan Murphy, Kathleen Baker, and Simone Manuel headed back to school this fall with prizes from the US Olympic Committee in tow.

For the University of Texas’ Joseph Schooling who won 100 butterfly gold for Singapore, and the nation’s first Olympic swimming medal, the check was a much larger sum. Schooling received $750,000 for his performance in Rio.

In light of this, NCAA President Mark Emmert explained that some in the NCAA are now questioning the policy.
