Can the HS kids take the money? Or are they up there for ‘rankings” purposes?

If I recall correctly they can take enough money to cover their expenses for travel/hotel/etc but no more

I think I’ve heard that before now that you say it.

If that’s true, those top college and high school kids better be staying at a very notice hotel and ect.

Bummer for Yozhik with Ledecky and Hosszu being showered with money for over-the-hill, mediocre performances (as he would call them).

You’re just a hater. Ledecky is worth every penny she’s earned. How many medals do you got? Oh that’s right you don’t have none. Ledecky is neither mediocre nor over the hill. She is the greatest freestyler to ever live and a legend.

Lol. You must be new here. He’s clapping back at another commenter who notoriously thinks Ledecky has hit a wall.

You’ve been once rude to me and are showing again misunderstanding the motives and purposes of my comments about my favorite swimmer Katie Ledecky. I probably possess one of the most detailed database about Ledecky and discussion of Katie’s results is never guessing. Ask Nuotofan he understands people much better than you do.

When you call Nuotofan as a character witness, well…. THE CALL WAS PERFECT!

Chill dude. Do a search for Hosszu, click on any article in the last two weeks that comes up, and prepare to read a novella written by Yozhik…then the above comment will make a lot more sense to you…

I never use personal attacks to insult people in discussion. Damn it. That is how my parents brought me up. But how can I disagree with you?!
Who corrected your emotional initial very accurate observation? Was it you who edited it or someone else?

I ain’t got no medals. You ain’t got no sense of humor or perspective. (P.S. Since you’re new here, just also want to point out, it’s poor form to pull out the “how many medals have you got” argument. If that were the criterion for giving an opinion here, the website would have to shut down.)

KL’s main revenue stream comes from her endorsements, specifically TYR. Just curious: how likely are you to purchase a TYR product over a competitor’s (e.g., Speedo, Arena, etc.) just because KL endorses it?

Reply to  Jared’s Man Bun

Just from TYR contract Katie Ledecky gets about $90,000 per month. It is almost twice more than what was paid to poor Hunter Biden. 😀 But from just two meets this Fall she got more than $10,000 . That is nice and not that small addition to main source of earning. These meets can be enough to pay for tuition for instance etc.

At this rate, pretty soon KL will be able to make a down payment on a starter home in nearby Redwood City! (Unfortunately, this is not a joke.)

If the products are good enough for her, I definitely buy them.

So how long until the ISL uses college and HS kids and just reimburses their travel? Or flat out pays them since the NCAA is going that route?
