At first one may wonder why a professional athlete at the peak of physical conditioning would need protection, but that’s one of the prime reasons some professional athletes choose to be escorted by personal protection officers. There’s always someone bowing up to them, trying to prove that they’re tougher. So a buffer of protection is sometimes necessary, not only for the athlete, but also for the unfortunate soul who tries to pick a fight.
