Skiing: Kjetil Jansrud announces his retirement

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

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