Professional athletes do amazing things in front of countless fans, but what they do outside of sports sometimes goes unnoticed. The famous athletes we know can’t just be inundated by their sports. The same as anyone of us, they need other hobbies to keep a level perspective on their lives.
Iit’s fun to know what sports superstars do away from the court without getting weirdly invasive. So, here is the list of some interesting hobbies that famous athletes pursue when they have spare time.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Bingo
It can be hard to imagine that this man with world-class skills, and willingness to flaunt in front of millions of people likes playing something as simple as a game of Bingo, which he used as tool to pick up on English numbers and sayings.
Rajon Rondo- Roller Skating
Rajon Rondo of the Chicago Bulls started roller skating as he was a member of the Boston Celtics.
When people think of finding a hobby that they want to become good at, slapping some wheels on the feet and gliding around and having to try not to break any bone isn’t the first thing to come their minds. It did for Rondo, though, and he looked to have a strong handle on roller skating, too.
Michelle Wie – Painting
Like any other ones, professional athletes also need an outlet away from work. For Michelle Wie, his job is golf and his release is painting. And painting isn’t just a hobby for Wie, she’s incredible at it.
While some of us can hardly draw stick figures with any consistency, it is cool to see that Wie can express herself via one of her favorite hobbies. She usually shows off some of her work through her social media accounts.
The nice thing about this hobby is that it’s never a competition. Anyone can pick up a pencil and paper to get to work the same way.
