Nick Youngquest Profile Information

  • Professional sport took its toll, not just the visible physical ones (nice straight nose and wonky finger), but also traumatic brain injury which isn’t visible in this picture.

Unfortunately, when I retired from professional sport in 2012 I started to experience seizures, the first being on the Avenue de Champs Elysees in Paris whilst working with Paco Rabanne.

Fortunately for me, the most evident side of such injury seems to be simply managed for me, specifically when considering mental health. I don’t have side effects similar to many of my former team mates and opponents, something I feel very grateful for.

Retiring from sport can be a huge hurdle for many players, the loss of team environment, loss of professional direction and loss of competition all can have a detrimental effect on ones mental well-being, things that can effect all of us, not just athletes. 
That’s why tomorrow I will be posting about a great initiative by Livin and Bolt For Gold thanks to very good mate, Mick Gordon’s nomination. Follow along and support people out there suffering day in and day out. We are stronger together. #itaintweaktospeak
