Worrying news has just been revealed by Nick Trigili on his official Youtube page.
According to Trigili, a number of athletes have contacted him to confirm that they still have not been paid their prize money from the 2020 Arnold Classic USA.
This years Arnold USA was hit hard by the coronavirus. The expo had to be cancelled and a limited number of spectators were given access to the events.
Nick continued to reveal that the athletes were still not reimbursed for their travel expenses.
Nick explains that the prize money is usually put aside before a event takes place to guarantee the athletes are paid.
In regards to which athletes were not paid, it is reported that a number of top athletes from various divisions contacted Nick to confirm they have not been paid.
According to the athletes, they have contacted the Arnold Sports management and the response was that they are waiting for a government loan.
It is not known if Arnold Schwarzenegger himself knows about these allegations.
This is a very sensitive situation, as the athletes are scared that if they make a big issue about this, they will be punished one way or another.
Whatever the problem is, these athletes all worked very hard to arrive at this event and they should get paid the money they earned.
