Chris Hoy Set to Retire?

Chris Hoy to retireSir Chris Hoy, GB’s most successful Olympian, is thought to be ready to announce his retirement. The 37-year-old, holder of 11 world titles and winner of two Golds at the London Olympics, has called a press conference for Thursday, April 18, in his hometown of Edinburgh, with BBC Scotland reporting that he will announce his immediate retirement there. The former-BBC Sports Personality of the Year had taken an extended break following last year’s Olympics – in part to develop his own brand of bike, but largely, it is thought, to consider his future. If he does indeed retire this coming Thursday it will leave what was almost certainly his guaranteed squad place open for a younger rider at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which are set to take place in Glasgow next year.
