Olymipc Gold Medalist Maelle Ricker has finally made up her mind about retiring from snowboarding.
“Before the Games, I was always asked ‘Are you going to retire after the Games? Are you going to retire after the Games? I was like ‘I don’t know.’ I sort of shrugged it off. Now the answer to me is very obvious: Yes, I am going to continue. I’m not going to stop because of the results. I’m going to continue because I absolutely love the process of everything that happened before the Games and travelling with my team and doing the training and feeling like I’m still progressing on my snowboard.”
She certainally hasn’t slowed down since the Olympics! She won the Crystal Globe as the World Cup champion in snowboard cross and the overall women’s Crystal Globe for collecting the most World Cup points of any female snowboarder. This past weekend, she defended her Canadian snowboard cross title.
