Freestyle skiing-Eldest Dufour-Lapointe sister retires from competition
Maxime Dufour-Lapointe, the eldest of three freestyle skiing sisters who competed at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, announced her retirement from the Canadian mogul's team on Wednesday.
"I'm sad, because I devoted myself 100 percent to freestyle skiing for the past 10 years," Dufour-Lapointe, 29, said in a statement. "But it's also a time to be proud of the career I've had. I celebrate and appreciate what I've accomplished.
"After everything I’ve experienced with my sisters, I’m leaving the sport with my head held high."
She was one of the first women mogul skiers to execute a backflip with full twist in the competition.
