Nice Guys Don’t Always Finish Last

A moment of on-field sportsmanship from Australian wicket-keeper Adam Gilchrist has led to him being signed up to play a role in the corporate world.

Gilchrist has joined foreign exchange company Travelex as a non-executive director.

The company already sponsors Gilchrist but says it chose him after his decision to walk in the World Cup semifinal despite being given not out.

Company chairman Lloyd Dorfman says Gilchrist has showed strong ethics in a high-pressure situation.

“Here you’ve got a guy who is prepared to walk himself out in the critical moment in the semifinal of a World Cup tournament, and in terms of integrity I don’t think you can do much better than that.”

Go figure….being a nice guy actually helping you climb the corporate chain. Next thing you know, politicians will be telling the truth. At any rate, way to go Gillie!

I wonder if Lleyton Hewitt will be getting any similiar offers. Apparently not, unless companies are looking to hire the ‘dumbest ever’ people.
