The modern Olympic Games brings both armature and professional athletes together into an equal competition to win a pinnacle Gold Medal.

However, the pay cheques for the various sporting disciplines are far from equal.

Forbes compiled a list of the highest paid Olympic Athletes competing for a Gold Medal and their earnings over the past 12 months in US dollars.

We doubt that it would come as any surprise that basketball, tennis and golf are the sports that pay their athletes the big dollars.

Rank Olympic Athlete Country Discipline Age USD Earning
No. 1 KEVIN DURANT USA Basketball 32 $75.0m
No. 2 NAOMI OSAKA Japan Tennis 23 $60.0m
No. 3 DAMIAN LILLARD USA Basketball 31 $40.5m
No. 4 NOVAK DJOKOVIC Serbia Tennis 34 $34.5m
No. 5 RORY MCILROY Northern Ireland Golf 32 $32.0m
No. 6 DEVIN BOOKER USA Basketball 24 $30.5m
