World and Olympic winner Marcel Hirscher has retired after a career that saw him win an eighth consecutive Alpine Ski World Cup title.
30, the Austrian, is considered among the greatest alpine skiers of all time.
He won two medals at seven World Championships and the 2018 Winter Olympics from 2013 to 2019.
But Hirscher told a press conference on Wednesday that he discovered he was taking more time to recuperate, including:”Now is the day once I finish my active career”.
“I always wished to stop while winning races. I’m not prepared anymore to cover the price.”
Hirscher has two World Cup titles than the second skier in history, yet another Annemarie Moser-Proell, who won six.
He began skiing at the age of two and has been educated by his father, who’s coached him during his career.
Austrian papers were conducting headlines for days on the anticipated retirement of Hirscher, together with Wednesday’s Oesterreich tabloid front page reading”Bye Marcel!” And the Kronen tabloid resulting in”Thanks Marcel!”
