23-year-old Logan Campbell has successfully fought his way through the last Olympic games in Beijing and is now embarking on opening an exclusive “gentleman's club”. New Zealand legalized prostitution six years ago.
Campbell got the idea while devising a way to support his training and taking the burden off his parents as he aims to compete in the next Olympics in 2012. However, the business might have a negative effect on his chances of being picked.
John Schofield, the New Zealand team's funding manager, said: "selection takes into account not just performance but also the athlete's ability to serve as an example to the youth of the country." Campbell won a bronze medal in taekwondo at Beijing.
