This was reported on Tuesday by both the Norwegian television station NRK and the daily newspaper “Verdens Gang”, citing sources close to the 32-year-old. Röiseland himself has not yet commented.

According to the reports, Röiseland will contest the last three races of her career at her home World Cup at Holmenkollen in Oslo from Friday. At the cradle of Nordic skiing, she received the golden crystal globe for the overall World Cup victory last year, but was infected with the corona virus at the subsequent end-of-season party. The consequences of the infection caused her major problems for many months, and she was only able to start the season after a long delay. However, she was fit in time for the World Championships and won two gold medals and one bronze medal in Oberhof.

The three-time Beijing Olympic champion is the most successful ski hunter of the recent past and most recently replaced Magdalena Neuner as the woman with the most gold medals at the title fights in Thuringia. Röiseland has a total of seven Olympic and 17 World Championship medals. The exceptional talent is married to Sverre Olsbu Röiseland, who has been in charge of the German women’s team as assistant coach since last summer.
