Thanx Scott, I have seen a study simmilar to this before however it seems that the athletes of endurence sports tend to contnue sports activity in there feild and in general a lot longer than those of the "power" sports. I suppose alot of the spescific training would have to give way to other activities as the body will experience significant were at their training loads in those sports. However for someone like myself or any athletes who do end up training at a lower capasity and in more variouse platforms after their "career" ends I have the feeling that the results on longevity may not be so clean cut. Maybe I am just in denial that a marrothon runner is doing a better job at ensuring a long healthy life than I am.
