A few do that (it might seem like a lot, but there are many countries). But after they get a college degree in a liberal arts major and go back, what next? Again they know they can fall back on government support.

I knew a guy who trained as a junior in France. 6'4" and could wipe most club players off the court. But he was a nobody in French tennis and moved to the US for employment.
