Abstract
Former male young athletes partially lost benefits in BMD (g/cm(2)) with cessation of exercise, but, despite this, had a higher BMD 4 years after cessation of career than a control group. A higher BMD might contribute to the lower incidence of fragility fractures found in former older athletes greater than or equal to60 years of age compared with a control group.
