    I wonder if their money problems led to their divorce? Also, the $600,00+ in prize money is surprisingly low to me. I’d have guessed in the millions. My sense is that the top skiers make their BIG money in sponsorships.

    Here’s a link I found interesting regarding athletes’ earnings.

    Super job blogging this year. You have a talent for this stuff! I hope you continue to post.

    Well done,
    Mr. H
