Re: Alexander Frenkel
Didn't he retire due to depression?
I'm not sure what happened in this particular case, but on a different note IMO modern day atheles distract themselves with a lot of things that come once you get even remotely famous. It happens in every sport and some people just lose motivation somewhere along the way. They don't appreciate what they have. And the saddest thing is they don't even realise that there are thousands of people that would kill just to have the opportunity to be in their shoes for a day.
