Athletes that go to the Olympics are representing our country and if they win they are bringing honor and respect to it. Then they get home after the Olympics, and realize that Uncle Sam (the government) is taxing their prize that they won for him. It is not right. They won the medal for national honor, and for the government to think that they can tax that is wrong. Let the athletes keep their medals, as they won it for the country. They don't have to sacrifice their blood, sweat and tears for the USA. They wanted to do it so they could represent the USA and bring honor to it. Let them keep their medals, Uncle Sam.
