Yeah you heard it well

Milan Djenadic won gold medal at Worlds Rowing Championships on Sunday as member of cayak team of Serbia. Very next day he went to work in the night shift. Mother Serbia-makes a champion and then shits on it ! However he should get 50.000 euros from government! Hope they stick to it! And we wonder why top sportsmen leave our country!

Natasa Janic left for Hungary where they offered her better conditions. She won Olympic Gold medal and 6!!!! Gold Medals at World Rowing Champs

The 50km walk European champion works in a stadium in a city close to mine, and earns about €1000/month. I earn more than him...

It is always important to have a back up plan, shit like this can happen especially if you live in a country with a weak economy. Not all athletes get huge sponsorship dollars. They should parlay their skills into businesses to generate the kind of income they desire. Winning medals doesn't mean automatic wealth and fame for all.
