Subject: 2013 Highest paid Chinese Athletes
I am not really familiar with sports outside of country. To be honest, I'm not really familiar with athletes' names. I can sit an enjoy a good baseball, football (American), or basketball game, but I am not able to name most of the players.

This website provides the 15 highest paid Chinese athletes of 2013. I was not able to find a 2014 list, but this list is insightful to the amount of money athletes make. As you can see, the range between the highest paid athletes ranged from $1.77 million to $20.04 million in 2013.

#15 Ding Junhui- Snooker, US $1.77 million
#14 Liang Wenchong, golf, US $2.09 million
#13 Zhang Linpeng, Football (Soccer), US $2.22 million
#12 Sun Xiang, Football (Soccer), US $2.25 million
#11 Feng Shanshan, gold, US $2.38 million
#2 Lin Dan, Badminton, US $4.83 million
#1 Li Na, Tennis, US $ 20.04 million
