US athletes cannot afford expenses at Sochi Olympics
US athletes cannot afford to pay all expenses at the Sochi Olympic Games, The Los Angeles Times reports.
US athletes get no state financing. As a result, many have to rely on social aid.
Bill Kerig launched RallyMe.com, a website where people can donate money in exchange for photos with autographs. GoFundMe and indiegogo are other two websites to support athletes. Successful athletes use other social media, including social networks to collect funds.
