Bronze medal bonus for Gerbi? MK proposes gov’t pay Olympic medalists

Israeli Olympic judoka Yarden Gerbi could get a monthly bonus for her bronze medal win, if a new law proposed by MK Oded Forrer (Yisrael Beytenu) Wednesday becomes law.

Forrer’s initiative would have the government pay homegrown Olympic medalists the equivalent of minimum wage each month, in exchange for dedicating one day a week to sports education.
