Woman Turns Down $50 Million Offer From Professional Steeplechase League To Participate In Olympics

BEIJING—In a rare show of selflessness not often seen in sports, Norwegian Olympic steeplechase competitor Kristine Engeset told reporters Monday that she has turned down the four-year, $50 million offer from the New York WaterJumps—the National Woman's Steeplechase League's most elite team—in order to retain her amateur status and participate in the Beijing Olympics.

"I told myself, the money for good steeplechasers will always be there, but the Olympics is the Olympics."
