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

Highly probably both of them will retire after this season as well, but atm there is no official confirmations, seems both will decide when season will be over, however for Guzik season is already over as she is sick..

Diego Occhiuzzi (ITA, Fencing, Sabre) announced he's going to retire at the end of this season...:evil:

his most remarkable success was surely the Olympic Individual Silver medal he won in London 2012 (he also won the Bronze medal in the Team event in both Beijing 2008 and London 2012)...

among others, he also won 3 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze medals between World and European Championships, always with the Italian team...

I thought he retired like 6-7 years ago :d 

 

Maybe because that's when I went to Netherlands - Brazil with my Brazilian now ex-girlfriend and she taught me a lot about the likes of Dante Amaral and Bernardinho and how they are so famous in Brazil, but after that I never heard anything about them anymore (ok, that's easy when you don't really follow volleyball..).

Most volleyball players still play for years in our nation league after leaving the national team, that's why we don't hear a lot about them. For instance, Fofao (Hélia Souza) left the NT after the gold in 2008, but played until 2015 for the Rio team - the same team that, to this date, has in its roster the libero Fabi Oliveira (which left the NT after the 2012 gold). I think that's also the case with Dante, who played until 2012 in the NT.

 

So it's kinda a common thing among the top players.

And this sad day unfortunately comes... Justyna Kowalczyk announced her retirement :cry: She will now compete only in very long "marathon" races as hobby. Thanks Justyna for everything what you did for Polish not only cross-country skiing but sport overall in recent 13 years :hatoff::bowdown: Sadly we don't have any good young or junior athletes in this sport for now, our future in cross-country is in dark colours...
