The sports stars of the past that keep shining today

Constant development, dedication, self-sacrifice and hard work are some of the essential factors that determine the success of the world’s top athletes.

And while it’s common to not hear from many of once-lauded stars once they retire, many of them keep on shining even after their careers are over. Some of them - even brighter than before.

Be it coaching, sports management, acting, business ventures or charity, the living legends we focus on keep using their influence to better themselves and the world around them.

Some are more famous than others and our goal is to shine a light on all of them, highlighting that not all of the sports superstars fade into obscurity after topping their respective leagues.

Nothing unites people around the world as the love for football, basketball, rugby, cricket, tennis and countless other beautiful sports. While the sports themselves are exciting to follow, the people on the playing fields are the ones we focus on the most. They are also the ones who understand the amazing uniting power of sports better than anyone else. On Living Legends, we not only look at the athletic achievements of the famous sports legends but at their humanitarian, charity or social awareness work as well. After all, people like Pelé, Serena Williams or Manute Bol serve as great examples for a far wider audience than just sports fans.

They do something remarkable

You do not become a legend for nothing. Whatever someone does they must stick in the mind of sports followers for years to come.

They retire from their chosen sport

Everyone has to end their career somewhere....or at least that is how it goes. Some Legends go on and on.

Professional Athletes - Professional Entrepreneurs

Many athletes don't stray far from their athletic roots by becoming coaches, managers and sports commentators later on, after their careers.
However, some of them use their acquired money and fame to invest and launch business ventures on the side, whilst showcasing their determination, hard work and willingness to take risks. All of these are the values that most people are inspired by and look up to.
