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.
