  • Allyson Felix Worth 8.5 Million!

    I noticed on the home page here an article about Asafa Powell being worth 6.5 million, so I did a little digging and found this:

    I had no idea!

    I suspect now that she has secured an individual Olympic gold her future earnings will shoot up too.

      Notice there's not one shred of corroborating information. I smell manure.

        That's what I'm thinking too. It's a lot easier to guesstimate what an athlete's income is than what his/her net worth is. How many times have we read stories about athletes who've made made tens of millions during their careers filing for bankruptcy?

        By the way, the same site lists Gabby Douglas' net worth at $3 million. :?

          I smell a woman that won't have much trouble landing a husband.

            That might have something more to do with their lifestyle and spending habits and not factoring in taxes and not putting anything aside for when the well runs dry.

            That doesn't mena she has 3 million, it's likely the calculated value of her sponsorship, future sponsorship, TV appearence fees, future biography deal, documentary etc. She's been pimped out by Oprah already and that seems to automatically get millions to pay attention and business to take notice.

              I don't see any reason why she shouldn't be worth that much, she's been at the top of the game for 10 years, competes everywhere, all the time, has some of the best contracts in the business etc etc etc

              She probably has earned $8.5 net which obviously doesn't been she actually has it in the bank but with good investments she should have kept hold a large chunk of it

                Sure it's a reasonable number, but I believe this website has put about as much information and calculations into their figure as you have.

                  Allyson probably didn't start raking in big bonuses and such until 2004 or 05, and anyway, because she isn't a marathoner or 1500 runner or top three 100 sprinter, I suspect she's not worth as much. But I could be wrong. Track earnings have always been a mystery because they aren't published.

                    Me, too.

                    Here's another entry from the same site:

                    >>Dianne Feinstein is the senior United States Senator from California and has a net worth $70 million. Dianne Feinstein earned her net worth as a Senator and Mayor. <<

                    Hm-m-m-m. If that's true, and if her average salary as Senator and Mayor was $200,000 per year (it was probably less), and she paid no taxes on that salary and saved every penny of it, she'd have had to be in office for 350 years to have a net worth of $70 million.

                    Nonsense!

                    I have the greatest respect for Allyson Felix, but I'd be surprised if her net worth exceeded $1 million right now.

                      Feinstein is married to an investment banker. Her Senate salary has very little to do with her net worth.

                        When you do not have the facts, it is best to keep quiet.

                          These figures are highly suspect. Asafa Powell's net worth I know is bogus for sure.

                            Mump boy. You are dreaming if you think there is that sort of money in track and field. Felix is a great athlete, she is gorgeous but that doesn't mean TnF has the marketing clout and demand for her to earn $850,000 every year for the past 10 years. Remember even Blake wasn't worth $40,000 a couple of weeks back

                              But how much is her NIke contract worth and how many other sponsors does she have ? what bonus' does she get every time she wins a medal, a national champs, runs a fast time ? is world ranked by T&FN ? and you don't need to have earned that much to be worth it, what investments does she have, what property has she bought, what businesses has she invested in ?

                              I know if different circumstances but Jess earned well over £1million in sponsorship this year before she won olympic gold and will probably double next year. Although there is less interest in track in the US there are also more opportunities for sponsorship.
