The two ski jumpers Bigna Windmueller of Switzerland and Wendy Vuik of the Netherlands have both decided to end her careers.

"Thanks to ski jumping I gained many experiences over the past years and I learnt a lot in this fascinating sport. I'm grateful and proud now looking back on a great time. Now I will take care of my future career and I'm looking forward to this new stage in my life", said Windmueller, who achieved her best World Cup result as third in Zao this January.

Wendy Vuik also decided to focus on her career after competitive sports. "Other nations simply have better training conditions than us. This is a little frustrating. I want to work as a teacher, so I have to study the next four years", the 25-year-old said to ladiesskijumping.com.
