Every time a legendary athlete gets ready to hang his or her boots, there is someone already waiting on the sidelines to take over the number one spot. Sports is all about passion and talent, and there is a lot of it to be found around the world. Whether it is a personal accomplishment, the pride of the country, or money, individuals spend their lives, practising day and night, trying to achieve fame and fortune in sports. The diversity in games allows for the young and fit to make it rich before they even reach 25, but at the same time experience plays a huge role, and there are players well into their 30s and 40s making it big in Tennis, Football, Cricket, Swimming and the likes. In the end, it is as much about mental strength as it is about physical fitness that eventually leads an athlete into the hall of fame.
