ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — We are exactly three months away from the opening ceremony of the summer Olympics. The world will celebrate on July 23.

The summer games can be extremely lucrative for some athletes. Dramatic gold medal wins can result in multi-million dollar paydays.

The athletic apparel company, Puma, signed Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt for $10 million a year after his dominance at the London games.

But most athletes have to keep their day jobs.

"I really let the students know, whatever they put into it is what they're going to get out of it, just like in athletics, just like in anything you do in life," Miranda Melville said. "I don't outright tell them, it's in my bio as a tutor but if the students haven't looked at it or their parents haven't they don't know, but sometimes they get curious and ask what I do outside of tutoring and I tell them and they're like 'Oh my gosh!' and I'm like, 'Yeah.'"

The finals for the 20-kilometer race walk at the Team USA track and field Olympic trials is Saturday, June 26 that's where Miranda can punch her ticket to Tokyo.

Less than one month after the track and field Olympic trials you can watch the summer games on News10NBC.
