Now that the 2012 Olympic Games in London are over, have you ever wondered what happens to athletes after the Olympics? "There is life after sports, lots of it," two-time Olympian, Irene Piotrowski of Los Angeles, California, said.

A media darling known as "Irene the Queen," Piotrowski was Canada's champion and world record-setter in track and field from 1963 to 1973. In 1993 she was inducted into the British Columbia Sports Hall of Fame. However, life for the former Olympian isn't golden; Piotrowski, now 71, was recently evicted from her apartment and is battling cancer. Her life is a remarkable story of becoming a world-class athlete as well as an inspiring example of dealing with reality after the fading of one's abilities and fame.
