Regular jobs of Sochi Olympians

Red Bull sponsors bobsledder Lolo Jones. Oakley sponsors short-track speed skater J.R. Celski. CoverGirl sponsors figure skater Ashley Wagner.

Those are some of the few elite athletes who receive some form of financial support from corporate sponsors, allowing them to focus on their sporting endeavors.

But outside the sports arena, some of their peers are not as fortunate. Many support themselves working regular jobs, as noted recently, to pay their bills and fund their sport.

Take a look at this list of Sochi 2014 Olympic athletes and their jobs.
