The training environment for Sweden is not good. The domestic scene is not focused and the professional environment is not very optimistic. For example, a top player like Waldner will only have around 300,000 ($42,000) to 400,000 ($57,000) yuan as their annual salary. This is equivalent to the working class of Sweden.

Yep, that is correct. But I doubt JO was better paid than a normal worker when he played in Sweden when he was younger. There is simply much more money in sports now, but not in Swedish TT. Also, there is no media attention what so ever for TT in Sweden, unless it has something to do with JO, Jörgen or Äpplet. :(
