  4. “The quintessential story of sport is the fact that great athletes die two deaths. They die the first death when they no longer play their sport, and then they also die, of course, like all of us do. Their second death is, in many cases, much, much later.” - Roger Kahn

  11. What is Being Done? Focus on Finances?

  12. The Solution? In American society, professional and Olympic caliber athletes are often forced to forego traditional educational, personal and career development opportunities due to an overemphasis on the “athlete identity” and lack of flexible options.  There is a wide range of athlete experiences that makes it impossible to apply “one-size fits all” approaches and requires flexibility and dexterity in any comprehensive tactical methodologies to address this issue. 

  13. Other Models? The Military • Soldier Identity = Athlete Identity • Purpose • Loss of purpose • Mayo Clinic • Grief

  14. Message for Broader Society • Your purpose • Career v. Experience • Start young
