The Zimbabwe Olympic Committee (ZOC) hosted a session of the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) Athlete Career Programme.
The workshop was delivered by human resources and recruitment experts Tracy Hard and Puvasha Tevan, as well as South Africa's Olympic rowing gold medallist Lawrence Ndlovu.
Athletes taking part represented sports including athletics, rowing, swimming, shooting, triathlon, football, volleyball, basketball, hockey and cycling.
The aim of the day was to help athletes prepare for their careers after retirement from elite sport.
The ZOC is one of a number of governing bodies worldwide which has put schemes in place to assist its sportsmen and women with the void left by competitive action.
Ndlovu helped win South Africa's first-ever Olympic gold medal in rowing at London 2012.
He was a member of the men's lightweight coxless four crew which triumphed at Dorney Lake in a time of 6min 2.84sec.
James Thompson, John Smith and Matthew Brittain completed the quartet.
Zimbabwe did not win a medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in August.
Their flagbearer was swimmer Kirsty Coventry, who has won seven out of the eight Olympic medals the country has won in its history.
Her haul includes golds in the women's 200m breaststroke at both Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008, as well as four silvers and one bronze.
Zimbabwe also won women's hockey gold at the heavily boycotted 1980 Olympics in Moscow.
