Athlete retirement: Staying close to the sports industry

An athlete’s retirement day may come earlier than expected, due to various reasons, including the nature and intensity of their sport or due to injury. Therefore, athletes are required to have a retirement plan in place, so that they are sufficiently prepared. Since it is difficult for athletes to leave behind the sport they dedicated their whole life to, some may decide to pursue a path within the sports industry, to stay close to the action.
