Award-winning French biathlete Martin Fourcade does not exclude that the next season will be the last in his career.
Six-time winner of the Big crystal globe for 28 years began to rewrite many records, the legendary Norwegian OLE Einar Bjoerndalen. Fourcade, being at the height of his fame, suddenly began to speak about his retirement from biathlon.
“For next season I have the motivation. But it is likely that I will retire after Pyeongchang 2018, as the motivation is hard to maintain constantly.
I have a huge load. Soon my house will be two children and my wife many sacrifices to allow me to be here.
I already won a lot, and inevitably there comes a time when you want to open something else and take advantage of the opportunities that are in front of you,” said Fourcade in an interview for the French newspaper “L’equipe”.
The upcoming Olympics in South Korea should become for Him the third of his career. The Frenchman in Sochi in 2014, won two gold medals and confirmed his silver in the mass start.
We will remind, in last season’s Martin Fourcade won the record for the men’s biathlon 14 victories, which allowed him for the third time in his career to become the absolute winner of the world Cup (the Big crystal globe+four small).
