RE: Official Thread to Discuss Boris Berian's Contract

terrible pay, IMO wrote:

way less than I thought. He's getting a pittance. Terrible pay for a potential future star. They could easily have doubled that.

He is just a potential star. It would be curious to know what he could get if he was an actual star. You would need to see what a Centro, Simpson, or Rupp contract is to see what a "star" gets.

The real question is how much added money for things like appearence fees (I am guessing from articles that guys like Rudisha are getting 25k+ to line up, Berian might be lucky to get some travel expenses), secondary endorsements (probably zero for a guy like Berian. Probably 90% of bolts earnings), and prize money over a year.

There are 2 ways of looking at this
-200k or so is a crap salary for someone who it top 10 in the world
-200k or so for running in circles is pretty darn good.
