Most Olympians are not marketing gold, except for maybe Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. Former agent Howard Bloom says there’s a short window of a couple of years where athletes can capitalize on their Olympic experience.

I think the big air snowboarding was a huge crowd favourite. Making Mark McMorris very marketable, even though he won the bronze on the other course. He is in a lot of commercials right now. Good for him. Of course Tessa and Scott were already so famous and beloved. But I have to say, no one has reaped more rewards than Kurt Browning in figure skating. For so many years. Through the time when skating became a huge deal and even before and after. He is still skating.
Likely, both Scott & Tessa will double their net worth in the next 6 months with commercial endorsements, interviews, game shows and ice exhibitions. I sense Tessa is not ready to raise a family. In fact, maybe, she is unable to have children. Whatever, she seems satisfied in developing new material for her ice performances and exploring her other passions. Scott remains her steady partner and her best friend. He is fiercely competitive for success in whatever comes his way. Even though they play it up as a romantic couple, I think Scott and Tessa truly have the "brother and sister" relationship with extreme loyalty. Out of the spotlight, Scott has relationships with other women, whereas Tessa seems oblivious to men wanting to become romantically involved with her.
people are making too much of a fuss about the girl that took off the medal, their are human too that can react and feel angry disapointed or whatever. It hapens all the time in other sports competetitions, like the world cup. She just took it off and people are acting like she threw it at the referees face or something
Tessa and Scott are the epitome of friendship, professionalism, commitment and most of all LOVE. I pray that they end up married soon and make little skating babies. God bless them role models for the new generation.
I remember the whole pro/amateur thing in skating-back in the 80s & 90s, that's what they did, they'd win their olympic medal, then turn pro. I remember people being surprised when Tara Lipinski went pro at 15-I wasn't, why not make that money, she already had her medal
It was unfortunate and in poor taste but she was, like, sobbing, and she looked like she was in a daze... I really just felt sorry for her and her teammates; i.e., that, for so many of these athletes, their self-esteem is completely dependent on winning GOLD, and that an Olympic Silver medal might as well be garbage.
Brian Orser -- two-time Silver medalist in Mens figure skating ('84 and '88), coach to some of the greatest names in the sport (Yuna Kim, Yuzuru Hanyu, Javier Fernandez) -- discussed how his razor-thin "loss" to Brian Boitano at the Calgary Games haunted him throughout the next decade of his life. And he had skated lights-out; i.e., it wasn't that he was disappointed in himself or his performance, but that the highly-subjective scoring had placed him just under Boitano. Not all athletes have these attitudes, of course, but for those that do -- and clearly Jocelynn does -- I really just have a lot of compassion.
The effective home remedies for baldness and hair loss in men include oil massages and including coconut milk, eggs, avocados, orange juice, aloe vera, neem paste, henna, mayonnaise, honey, black pepper, vinegar, and lemon juice in their diet. The remedies also include cutting back on red meat, eating nuts and brown rice, boosting B-complex vitamin intake, and maintaining good thyroid health.
For millions of men across the world, regardless of culture, class, nationality, religion, or color, hair loss is an unavoidable aspect of growing older. Fortunate are those who do not face hair loss problems even in their old age. However, a majority of men face this issue in their 40s, 50s, or even earlier.
Causes of Baldness or Hair Loss in Men.
There are a number of causes of male hair loss, including:
Male pattern baldness Alopecia Fungal infections Psychological disorders Chemotherapy side effects Nutrient deficiencies Hormonal imbalances Lack of circulation on the scalp Stress.
It is important to note that hair loss occurs in women as well, for some similar reasons, and some different ones. We will cover hair loss in women in a separate article. Men predominantly suffer from this health condition, particularly male pattern baldness and early onset hair loss from age 20-40.
However, there are ways to slow down the rate of male hair loss or baldness, and even stimulating the hair follicles to reproduce hair. A few home remedies for hair loss and baldness issue are discussed below.
