BRITISH Olympic freestyle skier Rowan Cheshire has announced her retirement at 24, saying her ‘body and mind just can’t keep up with the pace’.
A terrible crash before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi left Cheshire (pictured) with a broken nose and severe concussion, and unable to compete. She was seventh in the halfpipe at the 2018 Games.
‘I feel so privileged to have spent the last nine years pursuing the crazy sport I love,’ she said. ‘Being a part of Team GB was a dream come true.’
