RIO DE JANEIRO -- Singapore swimmer Joseph Schooling left Rio de Janeiro known as the man who defeated Michael Phelps. And as a millionaire.In addition to winning the gold medal after beating Phelps with an Olympic record in the 100 meter butterfly, the 21-year-old Schooling also took home a reward of 1 million Singaporean dollars (about US $750,000) from his national Olympic committee.Singapore was among the many countries offering hefty cash prizes to their medalists at the Rio Games, a practice that has become more common as nations continue to give greater importance to the final medal count.Few pay nearly as much as Singapore, but almost every country has been awarding at least some sort of prize money to medal winners in an attempt to improve their position in the medal table. The bonuses usually come through the national committees, sponsors or national governments. Some also give out non-cash prizes such as cars and apartments.Twenty percent of Schoolings prize will go to the local swimming association for future training and development, Singapores national committee said. Schoolings gold was the first ever for Singapore at the Olympics.Phelps returned home with more gold than Schooling, but less money. The American great earned $25,000 for each of his five gold medals and $15,000 for the silver, earning $140,000 from the U.S. Olympic Committee.By the end of Friday, the USOC had spent about $1.8 million in prizes after 105 medals were won by its athletes.Britain, second in the medal standings, did not award any prize money to its medalists.Italy was ninth in the medal count by Friday, but with the equivalent of nearly $170,000 awarded to each gold medalist in Rio, it had already spent about $2.6 million in prizes with 25 medal winners. The amount paid for each medal was the same even for athletes in team sports.Other top payers at the Olympics included Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Malaysia, each disbursing about $250,000 for gold medalists. Kazakhstan also gave out prizes to athletes finishing up to sixth place, while Malaysia awards a lifelong monthly pension that can reach about $1,200.Of course the money helps, said Patimat Abakarova, who won a bronze for Azerbaijan in Taekwondo and took home more than $60,000. But any athlete will tell you that this is not why we are here. We dont think about the money, thats not why we compete in the Olympics.Azerbaijan also gives its coaches half of the amount awarded to the medalists.Russias federal government is giving out about $60,000 for gold, and this time there is no word on whether it will also award luxury cars to all of its medalists, as it did at the Sochi Winter Games.Host Brazil is paying roughly $11,000 for its medalists, regardless of the color of the medal. The winners in team sports earn half of that amount. The Brazilian soccer federation reportedly is also expected to hand out $100,000 to Neymar and all of his teammates if they help Brazil win the soccer gold medal for the first time, although it doesnt officially confirm or deny the bonus amount.Sweden is among the few countries that dont reward athletes with money if their athletes win. The Swedish national committee said there was no medal bonus because we spend all our commercial money on preparation for the athletes, which means that we usually support them for six to eight years to reach world class.Some countries apparently didnt give any support at all.The national committee of the South Pacific islands of Vanuatu, which competed with four athletes, said the local government did not give even a cent to help our team participate in Rio 2016.---AP Sports Writers Gerald Imray and James Ellingworth contributed to this report.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni.

BARCELONA, Spain -- After missing out on the European Championship, forwards Victor Vitolo Machin and Andrea Belotti helped Spain and Italy move one step closer to World Cup qualification by leading their teams comfortable wins on Saturday.Vitolo was Spains most incisive player and put its 4-0 victory over Macedonia beyond doubt, while Belotti scored twice in Italys 4-0 victory at Liechtenstein.Spain and Italy have 10 points in Europes Group G, with the Spaniards ahead on goal difference. Macedonia and Liechtenstein have zero points.Israel moved into third place with nine points after winning 3-0 at 10-man Albania, which was left with six.SPAIN 4, MACEDONIA 0Spain coach Julen Lopetegui, who remained undefeated in five matches since taking over for Vicente del Bosque, had to make several changes to his first-choice squad due to a spate of injuries.Marc Bartra and Nacho Fernandez played in the center of the defense in place of Gerard Pique and Sergio Ramos. Nacho Monreal was in for Jordi Alba at left back, Thiago Alcantara filled in for Andres Iniesta in midfield, and Morata started in strike for Diego Costa.But Lopetegui stuck with Vitolo on the right side of his attack, and the Sevilla forward didnt disappoint.Macedonias respectable start was ruined when Darko Velkovskis headed clearance landed in his own net in the 34th.Vitolo emerged as Spains leader in the second half, coming close tto setting up Morata and David Silva before he nodded in Silvas pass to double the lead in the 63rd.ddddddddddddMonreal added a volley the 84th for his first international goal before substitute Aritz Aduriz made it four goals a minute later after Vitolo let Silvas pass run through to the striker.LIECHTENSTEIN 0, ITALY 4Belotti put Italy ahead early after he headed in a corner kick by Alessio Romagnoli.Ciro Immobile struck Italys second in less than a minute, and Candreva made it 3-0 before Belotti netted his second just before halftime.Belotti has also scored eight times for Torino in Serie A this season.ALBANIA 0, ISRAEL 3Israel won the match that was played under tight security measures after media reports alleged a group of 15 persons arrested in Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia, planned an attack during the game.Albania was down a man and a goal from the 18th after Berat Djimsiti was sent off with a direct red card for fouling an Israel player with only the goalkeeper to beat.Eran Zahavi converted the penalty for Israel, which got a second goal from Dan Einbinder and a third from Eliran Atar late.Only the group winner automatically secures a spot for the World Cup in Russia. The second-place team must go through a playoff to make it to the 2018 tournament.
