Ski: Kjetil Jansrud announces his retirement

Kjetil Jansrud (36) is retiring from alpine skiing at the end of the week. The 36-year-old Norwegian, Olympic champion in Sochi in 2014, has been one of the defining figures in the World Cup in recent years.

The descent from Kvitfjell on Saturday will be his last race, Jansrud announced via Instagram. “A number of considerations led to this decision,” he explained, adding: “It’s not easy to end something that you’ve done your whole life.”
