What do the players do with all that money? The page forbeswell versed in money matters, asked the 5 e-athletes what they bought first with the money:

The Israeli “33” (25) apparently had a specific wish list with things that were due. He says:

“I’ve rented a new apartment in Bucharest, so I’m going to furnish it and buy a new PC and a big TV. I also got a new laptop and gave my girlfriend an iPhone. So I’m going to do a little shopping spree, but I wouldn’t say I’m being particularly lavish now… except for the Thailand holiday where we stayed at some nice 5 star hotels.”

North Macedonian Saska (27) is looking around for new items for his house because he has just found an apartment and wants to renovate it this summer. He has bought his parents a new laptop and now wants to give gifts to others when he has the opportunity.

The Slovakian skier has also treated himself to an upgrade of the flight and is toying with the idea of ​​laughing at a new car:

I bought an expensive sweater, a coat and upgraded my flight to business class. Other than that, everything is pretty normal. I’m thinking of replacing my 2004 Volkswagen Golf with a newer car, but don’t know which one yet.
