Ova 30-godišnjakinja uz pjesmu "Destiny's Childa - Survivor" objavila je da odlazi u skijašku penziju.

- Spremna sam za novo poglavlje. Moje srce i razum mi govore da je vrijeme za nešto novo. I zbog toga sam odlučila da se povučem. Skijanje je bilo moj čitav život. Ono me oblikovalo u ono što jesam i uvijek ću imati posebnu strast prema tom sportu. Zahvalna sam na prilikama koje sam imala, da učim i ostvarim rezultate u proteklih 15 godina. Uspjela sam ostvariti svoje snove iz djetinjstva i još mnogo toga - napisala je Veith.

Veith je 2014. i 2015. godine osvojila Svjetski kup, a ona je 21. oktobra 2015. pala na treningu i pokidala ligamente desnog koljena, samo tri dana prije početka nove sezone. Oporavak je trajao 14 mjeseci.

Osim dva Velika kristalna globusa, Anna je tokom karijere osvojila jednu zlatnu i dvije srebrene medalje, a u svom vlasništvu sa svjetskih prvenstava ima tri zlata, dva srebra i jednu bronzu.

Nakon Marcela Hirschera austrijsko skijanje je definitivno ostalo bez još jednog velikog imena.

I‘m ready for the next chapter. My heart and head are telling me it‘s time to do something new. And so, I have decided to retire from ski racing. Skiing is my whole life. It has made me who I am today and will always be something I’m passionate about. I am so grateful for the opportunities I’ve had, to learn and achieve in the past fifteen years. I’ve been able to fulfil my childhood dreams and more. I could never have imagined, that skiing would teach me so much. It’s not just about winning or losing for me. It‘s building and being a team. I truly believe that this is what takes you to the top. I have been lucky to have many people stand by my side, even when success didn’t always come. For those people and partners, I will be forever grateful. Thank you for believing in me. I have made friends for life and will always look back on my experiences with a huge smile. Now, I‘m excited to see what the future holds and look forward to seeing many of you there. Thank you, for your endless support. It has always and continues to mean so much to me. Your, Anna
