American World Cup veteran Tim Jitloff announced his retirement from ski racing in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

“I have travelled the world, competed against the best, and challenged myself to reach and go beyond my limits,” he wrote. “The time has now come to say goodbye. It is not with sadness that I say this, but with joy and gratitude.”


Jitloff made his World Cup debut in 2006 and while he never earned a World Cup podium, he had several top-10 results throughout the course of his career. The 33-year-old skier competed in two Olympic Winter Games, earning 15th in the giant slalom at Sochi, and six World Championships.
