Tom Sloan Cartoon: A Career from Olympic Curling

Written by Tom Sloan

What do Olympians do after they retire from their sport? With experience in curling, there are many options. Our Tom Sloan’s cartoon series celebrating the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics starts here. — I am not a young man anymore. The odds of me being an Olympian are diminishing more and more every year. I think about the only thing I have any chance at is curling. I know how to sweep. After my Olympic career is over, I will have to look at other avenues once more.
