    Retirement from sports

    “Sport has shaped me, it has provided emotions out of this world, impressions that I will never forget for the rest of my life. It is impossible to even DESCRIBE what it is like to stand in the finals of the Olympic Games and fight for a medal of the most important sports event in the world. I am happy and grateful that I was able to experience it. This and many, many other exciting moments.
    Now is the time to put all that learning into action. The feeling that there were a lot of fans behind me helped me set the bar high every day. Thank you for being my support for so many years. I achieved it with you.”
