    Four or five career changes in any persons working lifetime I would think is not unusual these days. Why would an Olympic grade athlete be any different? If they have not looked to their future before their career in sport should finish then they are naive and a bit thoughtless.

    On the other hand, if you know how to pimp yourself out to the establishment and kiss enough backsides, all manner of opportunities come your way. Seb Coe ( opps sorry your lordship) Lord Coe's not do too bad for himself bearing in mind his one true skill is that he could run fast and, hasn't Katherine Grainger done rather well? She's now a Dame, Chancellor of an Oxford college and in her spare time now runs UK sport... not a bad reward for rowing a boat
