Drop taxes on Olympic gold medals

An Italian shooter after winning a silver medal yesterday in double trap shooting, has called for his government to drop the taxes on money won through winning an Olympic medal.

“I would sincerely hope that the (Italian) parliament would pass this law,” D’Aniello told a news conference when asked about the taxation back home, a question and answer translated from Italian back and forth through Chinese and English.

“We athletes go through major sacrifices to get to this level. It would be the right thing to do to remove the taxes from what we get here. It would be a very good thing,” he said, without stating the value of the reward.
