    Default Players' Occupations

    As I know, many players have their own occupation.


    Except for China players(they are full time sportsmen), some

    players have work to do.


    EX. Wijaya is a pharmacist

    some Denmark players are doctors (incredible!!)

    Jens Eriksen is a truck driver

    Bach Howard is a supermakert cashier



    For Asia player, many of them go to differnet fields after retiring.


    EX. Sze YU and Gong Ruina become actors

    http://www.8bo8.org/News/166148.html




    So , how about discussing this topic? what kind of occupation do you know

    that badminton players do?

    In the west, it's common for a pro to be working elsewhere in a job unrelated to badminton.
    In the east, it's uncommon for a pro to be busy with anything other than badminton.

    For instance, no player on China's current squad works for a living.
    They play, train, play and train.

    However, nearly everyone on the Denmark team works for a living.
    Unless you're Peter Gade or Morten Frost, it is difficult to generate enough from badminton for the times ahead.

    Here's a few others:

    England's Rajiv Ouseph is a graduate in Media & Communication Studies.
    However, he is now a full-time professional player.

    Denmark's Thomas Laybourn is a graphic deigner.

    England's Donna Kellogg holds a degree in Physical Education, Sport Science & Recreational Management.

    India's Chetan Anand is an Executive Engineer with the Oil & Natural Gas Corporation. He studied Mechanical Manufacturing.

    Interesting question - raises several issues, especially here in the West.

    English WS player Jill Pittard has a full time job as a calibration engineer for Landrover cars. She recently won the WS title at the English National Championships

    He'll be out of fashioned when he's lawyer later.

    He was a medical student when fighting Sun Jun in the 1997 WC final.
    But it's not clear if he finished medical school.
