With the continuous development of China's sports industry, the corresponding resettlement policy issues of competitive sport athletes after retirement have become more prominent. This article uses methods such as literature review and on-site investigation to understand that the current social security policies for athletes are not yet perfect, and there are still some athletes who cannot achieve career conversion after retirement, causing employment difficulties. If this problem is not solved for a long time, it will seriously affect the sustainable development of competitive sport in China. Therefore, by studying the current situation and solutions of competitive sport athletes' post-retirement resettlement, we can provide some theoretical reference for the development of competitive sport athletes' post-retirement resettlement.
