Singer Neil Diamond ditched the chance to pursue a career as a professional fencer to take up music.
The star was so successful at the sport he won a full college scholarship granting him a free education, but he turned his back as soon as he landed the opportunity to pursue fame and fortune as a singer.
Diamond revealed: “I fell in love with the sport. We were city champions. I was scouted by colleges. New York University offered me a scholarship and I got free education.”
