How it all started
Once Miku posted a photo in a swimsuit on social networks, which caused a sensation among her followers. The Japanese liked the increased attention, and she started thinking about a career change, specifically, leaving swimming for adult films. Now the athlete is starring in adult movies. She chose a new name for her new job - Saki Shinkai.
In an interview with Corriere dello Sport, the Japanese revealed the main reason for the activity change in detail.
I was surprised to learn about my popularity in the erotic industry. I was curious and watched some porno films. At first, I had a negative feeling, but these works seemed very interesting to me. I decided to give it a try. Perhaps, this is where I truly found myself. And yes, I don't need to outrun anyone here. Simply because I have no competitors.
She faced a lot of hatred from her followers
Initially, the public was skeptical about Miku's new occupation. When the swimmer published a photo of her naked body, there were many negative comments. Some were confused. Others accused her of doing dirty business.
But Miku ignored the negativity and continued filming. In February 2022, there was a full-fledged adult movie with the Japanese woman, where she appeared in her familiar role as a swimmer.
Who is Miku Kojima?
Miku is only 22 years old, but she has achieved a lot in swimming in that short time. The girl performed well in middle-distance swimming and even won two golden medals at the world championships in her age category.
Kojima's career peaked in 2018 when she won a bronze medal in the relay at the Youth Olympic Games in Argentina. The Japanese could have debuted at the adult Olympics in Tokyo two years later, but she did not take advantage of this opportunity. In 2019, Miku left sports to pursue higher education, and now - for a career as an adult film actress.
Every athlete decides for themselves what to do after their career ends. Some go into coaching. Others start a business. Miku Kojima left swimming to become a porn actress at the peak of her career. That's quite a turn!
Miku is not the only female athlete-turned-porn actress
The path from sports to the adult movie industry was trodden before Miku. One of the most famous examples is the Belgian gymnast Verona van de Leur. She won medals at world and European championships and, after retiring from sports, began working as a webcam model.
If you fail in sport, just change your profession. Australian racer Renee Gracie also followed this path. She suffered from the lack of noticeable results and started working part-time on an adult website. Surprisingly, Renee made more money in her first week in her new business than she did in her racing career. Later on, when the Australian became a star in the adult film industry, her income increased tenfold.
