Prague, March 28 (CTK) - Czech downhill skier Sarka Strachova, 32, ended her career yesterday after having taken part in 15 seasons of the World Cup and having won a bronze medal at the Vancouver Olympic Games in 2010 and the title of world champion in slalom in Aare in 2007.

"My decision was prompted by my extreme internal feeling that the right moment has come to say good-bye. This is not any question of motivation," Strachova said.

In 2005, Strachova won the bronze medal at the world championship in Santa Caterina and the silver medal in Val d'Isere in 2009.

She also finished third at the world championship in Beaver Creek in 2015.

She scored two wins in the World Cup, in Aspen in 2008 and 2009.
