“It’s a very sensible option to study alongside sport because your sporting career isn’t going to last your lifetime.  If you are lucky you can make a living but once you stop competing it’s very important to have something to fall back on.  There’s a possibility of injury as well so you never know how your career is going to pan out really. Study works to balance your sport as well because it’s a really useful distraction.”
