AGORA: "Is there life after sport?"

They have all been winners, but not all have carried on in the same way. Some have gone straight on to success in a new career. But others have sunk into anonymity and suffered serious setbacks. Starting out again after a sports career is never simple. Featuring Roland Collombin, Alpine skiing Olympic medallist and world champion in 1972, several times World Cup winner, wholesaler; Etienne Dagon, Olympic 200m breast stroke medallist, Los Angeles 1984, Head of the Sports Department for the town of Neuchâtel; Kelly Fairweather, IOC Sports Director; Laurence Fischer, karate world champion in 1998 and 2000, four times European champion from 1999 to 2004, humanitarian mission leader in Afghanistan; Erika Hess-Reymond, Olympic medallist, six times Alpine skiing world champion, youth trainer and coach; and Jacques Reymond, former Swiss ski team trainer and co-founder of a company specialising in helping elite athletes change career (Gesport Management); Catherine Tanvier, French tennis champion in 1982 and 1990, with 10 titles on the WTA tour, has just published her autobiography: Déclassée.
