Life after sports

Met up with former Mailsports editor Tony Mariadass at the National Press Club last week as he spoke about life outside the newspaper.

"When you're in office, everyone greets you. The moment you quit, no one remembers you."

Was at the National Tennis Centre yesterday as a handful of former internationals, most celebrated athletes during their prime, were seen coaching kids.

Just passed Ng Joo Ngan's bicycle shop at Jalan Ampang and things seem relatively quiet inside. Joo Ngan was a celebrated cyclist during his time.

It looks like we all have a shelf-life. Some a little longer, others expire pre-maturely.

But there are those who just seem to last forever.
