Since the show skating circuit seems to be almost non-existent (at least in the states) and skating lessons from famous coaches is expensive as all get out, how do skaters stay financially solvent after their skating careers are over? I feel like Yuna or Mao...ok, I understand how they will be fine due to all their endorsements. But for 99% of skaters (even good ones like Ashley Wagner and Adam Rippon), it's not like anyone is really paying them to be figure skaters...in fact, they are the ones paying boatloads of money to their coaches to win tournaments that don't really net them any money. I also assume a lot of these skaters, like many pro athletes, are not college educated. So...I'm wondering how they pay back all that coaching money with nothing but trophies and not being college educated to show for it.
