The United States of America gives huge amounts of money,"from the state" to train young athletes as well. Does all the hard training help the young people? I wonder...and all of it, for political propaganda...at the childrens well beings expense.

Is that right? I live in that country and didn't know about that. I was never offered any money or special training to become an Olympic athlete and I'm pretty sure that Michael Phelps wasn't either.

I believe the motivation for the people in the USA is to show that they are the best in the world and to get sponsorships if they win. Michael Phelps got a $1 million bonus from Speedo, for example.

If you have a link to a site that shows the government paying to train athletes to compete in the olympics, I would be interested in seeing that. Note that this does not mean payments from sponsorship companies like Speedo or Nike.
