After much consideration, I've decided that this will be my last season of professional racing.
I love biathlon and am excited to stay involved in the sport through coaching and development. I know there will be times when I will miss competing, but I am excited to start this new phase of my life!
I want to thank everyone who has supported me along my journey to two Olympics, three World Championship teams, and many World Cup starts. I appreciate your support and kind words that helped motivate me for the last 7 years. It has been an adventure I will never forget and one I know I am so lucky to have had the chance to take. Thank you all for sharing it with me!
That said, there are still two more weekends of World Cup racing this year, and I will race as hard as ever! Keep tabs on my final races via Facebook
and right here on my blog.
All the best,
