Libby Trickett, one of Australia’s most decorated swimmers, has retired due to a wrist injury, Swimming Australia said on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old, who was a member of the women’s gold medal winning 4×100 metres freestyle relay team at last year’s London Olympics, has struggled to return to the pool after suffering the injury eight months ago.
“There will always be a tinge of sadness to leave the sport that I love, but I have wonderful memories and experiences to draw upon in the future,” Trickett said in a statement.
“I feel at peace with my decision and most importantly I feel that I am finally ready to take on the next adventure in my life.”
