32-year-old Austrian biathlete Dominik Landertinger took the decision to retire.
“The time to stop. After surgery on the intervertebral disk, I had a difficult period and to continue to compete, it would be careless for my health.
I am proud of my achievements and the fact that he showed good results in important tournaments. I want to thank family, friends, the Federation and partners in the national team, with whom we have been friends for years,” said Landertinger.
Landertinger is a two-time silver medalist and two-time bronze medalist of the Olympic games and the 2009 world champion in the mass start.
