What was already suspected by many after the French team nominations were announced on Friday is now official: Vincent Descombes Sevoie has ended his Ski Jumping career.
"I think I have given my all ever since I was five and a half years old. In order to compete with the world's best ski jumpers and the world's best teams you have to give 200 %. I have made many sacrifices during my career and right now I'm not sure if I can continue to do so. This is one of the reasons why I have decided to end my career", the 34-year-old Chamonix native is quoted on ski-nordique.net.
In the last 12 years, Vincent Descombes Sevoie participated in 188 individual World Cup competitions. He achieved his best result in November 2016 with a fifth place in Ruka (FIN). In the 2016/17 season he also had his best overall World Cup finish in 16th.
