When it comes to the fine line between athletes and actors, it’s not really as fine as one would think. A lot of times, once a sports career is over, some athletes try to make an effort to move into acting. Other times, the sports part is a side interest while they wait for Hollywood to cast them in something.
And sometimes, that side gig propels you to the greatest stage of the world – The Olympics. These actors here actually were Olympians at one point in their lives, or got so incredibly close they could touch it.
I think that’s pretty cool!
