GO­ING SWIM­MINGLY

The Courier-Mail - QWeekend - - YOUR VIEW -

Full credit to Stephanie Rice “Chang­ing Lanes” (April 23-24), for work­ing to­wards es­tab­lish­ing a life be­yond that black line in the pool, through her var­i­ous busi­nesses. So many of our swim­mers (in par­tic­u­lar), find the adjustment back to the real world once that “ev­ery­one wants me, I’m in de­mand, spon­sor­ship of­fers” light bulb goes out. We (Aussies), need to take re­spon­si­bil­ity to some ex­tent, and es­tab­lish a pro­gram to men­tor our elite ath­letes through that adjustment process. Pam McGa­hey, Mount Sam­son
