This chapter will examine the various routes that Chinese retired elite athletes have taken in seeking re-employment. It will focus on the history of policy making and its function in relation to the retirement and re-employment of the Chinese elite athletes. These policies are subdivided into three periods: the mandatory measures period, the transition period and the marketing measures period. Further, statistical backup will be attached to prove and analyse functions of the policy in each period.
