How to... be a success on and off the field
An athlete’s sporting career, no matter how brilliant, will always come to an end. So it is important to prepare for the future by finding the right balance between your sport, your education and your social life.
The skills you develop as an athlete - such as dedication, organisation and networking - can also help prepare you for life after competition and help you achieve your life goals.
So enjoy the present, but don’t forget about your future and you can be a success both on and off the field of play.
