Usain Bolt Actually Makes More Money Than Michael Phelps

The 29-year-old Jamaican sprinter took home $32.5 million over the calendar year leading up to the 2016 Summer Olympics, and he stands to make even more in the coming year after Rio de Janeiro. Bolt ranked No. 32 on Forbes Magazine’s annual list of the top 100 highest-paid athletes, raking in $2.5 million in winnings and another $30 million in endorsements between June 2015 and June 2016. He is the only Olympian on the top-100 list who doesn’t play professional basketball, golf, tennis or soccer.

Michael Phelps does not appear on Forbes’ list of 14 Olympians who earned at least $18 million from June to June, and online estimates of his net worth come in at $55 million — shy of Bolt’s estimated $60 million net worth.
