True, just like olympic sailors being sponsored by North or Harken or whoever (I suspect she may have paid for her custom gun, though probably not the $30k you or I would have to stump up for one, a bit like Ben's Finn). The issue is always sponsorship, when the Olympics was all amateur sponsorship was not allowed (or at least strictly controlled) and the only 'professional' sportsmen were 'employed' in the armed forces of certain Nations. I didn't like the Olympics allowing professionals to compete but, with hindsight, it may well have levelled the playing field.

including those of  NATO nations as well as the   WarPac

I would agree with anyone who says that Olympic engagement in any sport is very expensive.

My point and opinion is that I like to think of Olympic sports as being accessible to most as grass roots level.

From a terrible click bate website 
 
Not sure how reliable 

Shooting (approximately $700,000 to $1.5 million a year)

Professional shooters average anywhere between 500-1,000 rounds a day at $16 per 25 shots for targets and ammunition, according to Kim Rhode, who holds the world-record for winning five consecutive medals. That comes to $5,000-7,000 a day in full training. A gun can cost anywhere between $6,000 to $300,000. Rhode spent between $20,000-$30,000 on her custom gun.

There isn't a problem with expensive sports in Olympics, no sport dearer than show jumping, issue caused by World sailings muddled messages.

You still need a relatively expensive boat to train with and for the training to be meaningful other boats of a similar standard to train and race against. Not cheap or inclusive.

If the boats are going to be supplied at all International events then the cost of ownership for the individual crews will be considerably reduced. No need to own multiple boats so one can be in transit somewhere and so on. Fewer sails to buy. No doubt there will be hefty charter fees though unless loads of sponsorship can be found, but my understanding is that buying boats isn't one of the biggest items in an Olympic campaign budget.
