Grugger ends career

Hans Grugger quits professional skiing.

The 30-year-old downhill specialist from Salzburg announced he decided to finish his career due to the manifold physical complications he still suffered from following serious accidents in World Cup competition.

Grugger said he might become a ski instructor. News of his retirement comes just weeks after East Tyrolean Mario Scheiber, 29, announced his resignation from World Cup skiing.
