Thus, Saturday’s ramp at Kvitfjell will be the Vinstra Boy’s last race.
Kjetil Jansrud was for many years one of the best climbers in the world, and the 36-year-old won several Olympic and World Cup medals.
Saturday’s ramp in Kvitfjell will be my last race as an active alpine runner to attack the Vikings. A train of thought led to this decision – quitting something you’ve done your whole life isn’t an easy decision, Jansrud wrote on Instagram.
Standing with the Olympic gold medal in his career. He came in the Super G in Sochi in 2014. In addition to this, he held two Olympic silver medals, in giant slalom from 2010 and downhill from 2018. There were also two Olympic bronze medals. In the context of the World Cup, Jansrud has one gold and two silvers. In total, he won 23 World Cup races.
Jansrud fell and injured his knee in early December and it was reported at the time that the season was over. However, Jansrud miraculously made it to the Olympics in Beijing, but the Finstra boy was far from the medal in what became his last Olympics.
However, I am very happy that I chose to retire at Kvitfjell, where I won my first win in 2012 and have been running in front of family and friends every year since then. I practically grew up in this field – and I wish to express the gratitude I feel. In these dangerous times, my retirement life – and this position – seems meaningless, writes Jansrud, who shows his support for Ukraine.
My thoughts and hopes are with the Ukrainian people. be strong. I am really looking forward to more time with my family and loved ones, the only important thing. I think there will be more to remember, and the people I have to thank – including all of you who have given your support for so long – having run my last races!
