She has won an Olympic gold medal, a World Championship silver medal, and two World Cups; and, yesterday, Swedish cross country skier Anna Olsson announced that she will no longer compete on the international stage.  Olsson’s career spanned 13 years on the Swedish cross country ski team, and she told reporters that she looks “forward to being at home and having time to fuss with things that I have longed to do.”  From all of us here at TSC, congrats to Anna on a fantastic career and best of luck with her future endeavors.
