Rewards, Incentives... but save up for the future!

Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) president Tunku Imran Tuanku Jaafar believes that athletes are just given too much money as said here

Instead he wants athletes to save up for their future as said here.

While all the 'moolah' is being handed out for their success - what happens to them if they don't save up for their future? after all they have a short span at their earning peak before it all drops.

Then it'll depend on decisions taken during they heydays.

as Tunku Imran said.... "we certainly appreciate and value the dedication, sacrifice and hard work of our athletes but at the same time, we wish to inculcate in them the need to be thrifty and to save"

  1. "save up for the future" said the multi millionaire to young ones who were dazzled by the money THEY EARNED. Giving sagely advice is all well and good, and in fact, saving for the future is something everyone should do. But seriously, 19, 20 year olds, given 10K, 20K... you seriously expect them to save anything?
