Kaarel Nurmsalu ends his career
Kaarel Nurmsalu surprisingly announced the end of his career on Thursday.
The reason for this decision of the 23-year-old Estonian were financial problems. "Everything good must come to an end. Despite a lot of effort over the past 18 months it was not possible to get the necessary budget together. That's why Kaarel decided to retire. The reason is simple. The funds would not have been enough to take the next step", his fanclub writes in a statement on the facebook page.
Kaarel Nurmsalu, who was a nordic combined athlete before his career in ski jumping and won the bronze medal in both disciplines at the Junior World Championships 2011, made his debut in the World Cup in November 2011. He achieved his best result last March with a sixth place at the Holmenkollen in Oslo.
