French biathletes Marie Dorin and Jean-Guillaume Béatrix.

The sport I'm most nervous about in terms of retirements. At least Laura Dahlmeier has said she won't retire yet, so that's a load off my mind :d

 Janne Ahonen (Men's ski jumping) is going to retire as well, but he said about Ahonen jumping in 2022. I'm pretty sure it's his son, but who knows :d Gonna have to wait the confirmation lol

Yep, he said he wanted to experience the world champs in a full Olympic stadium first and then retire. Sort of a cult hero :d

That was entirely expected, as he already was planning to retire after 2015/16, but came back for one more Olympics (and then won that incredible world title in Hochfilzen).

He said lately that don't have more motivations for hard trainings as he don't see anymore chances for good results considering his age and can't be to his highest level after accident in summer :/

 

Also after last biathlon world cup stage in Tyumen Weronika Nowakowska will retire, but I mentioned about this already many times :d

I've heard that Gwizdon and Palka (Guzik, habits die hard) might retire as well or are these just rumours?
