Games Purses and the Masters

Hi All. Recently saw that the overall purse size was up at the games. I think it's great for the sport and all involved. However, the purses for masters athletes are 3, 2, and 1k for podium and that's all.

To me this seems a bit of a snub and wrong. The level of competition is intense and those guys and gals train and prep their faces off each day just like the younger crowd. Just doesn't seem right.

What are the communities thoughts on this?

Everyone competing in the masters division has already been signed up and training for months with the expectation of zero dollars. Zero to $3000 is a snub? I don't think so.
