Paralympians and Olympians to Finally Be Paid the Same!

Paralympians and Olympians will finally get the same financial reward for medals after an announcement from Prime Minister Scott Morrison today.

Mr Morrison said the government would “provide additional support to Paralympics Australia” to make sure athletes who win medals get “equivalent payments to our Olympics medallists”.

The announcement came with Australia’s Paralympic team sitting eighth on the medal tally with 13 gold medals as well as 23 silver and 24 bronze.

The total of 60 medals puts us six on the ladder with a number of medal chances remaining over the final four days of competition.
