Sports as career option

Many people must have told about many career options which require lots of books, dedication and patients, but seriously person like me hate studies. So let’s talk about making your passion or hobbies as your career like sports. When it comes to sports icon there are genre of sport and become a national or global icon, here are some ambassadors who have risen up among the ranks to become global sporting icons, like Tiger woods’, David Beckham, Michael Jordan, usain bolt, Bruce Lee last but not the least Muhammad Ali.
Sports persons with years of experience are now being offered to work in a related field, such as, sports journalism, sports goods manufacture/marketing or as commentator. According to Forbes magazine the two highest paid athletes in 2004 were golfer Tiger Woods and race car driver Michael Schumacher. But the two highest paying sports were baseball and basketball. In India highest paying sport is cricket. Apart from this there are many perks which you can enjoy. No one can deny the fact that competition is in every field; it’s depend on you how you portray yourself against the odds. A famous tennis player Althea Gibson said "In the field of sports you are more or less accepted for what you do rather than what you are." So choose what you want to be rather what people want you to be.
