Who Made The List Of America's Richest Self-Made Women

It's no secret that athletes are among the highest-earners in the world each and every year. But on Wednesday, Forbes revealed the top 100 earners in sports -- and precisely how much they rake in.

The list includes all sources of income -- including endorsement deals and paid appearances, which made up 29 percent of the $3.15 billion that the 100 richest athletes made in total.
