Charlotte Kalla Ends Her Elite Career At the Swedish Championships

Nine Olympic medals, 13 World Cup medals, 59 podium places in the World Cup, and 28 Swedish Championships golds make Charlotte Kalla Sweden’s most successful cross-country skier of all time. With a curiosity about life outside of elite sports, she now chooses to end her elite career.

Charlotte Kalla has decided:

“The Swedish Championships at home in Norrbotten will be my last as an elite skier. Here I took my first steps as a seven-year-old, and it feels good to end my career here,” says one of the country’s most popular and successful athletes of all time.

Charlotte Kalla says in a press release that the decision has emerged in the past month.

“Curiosity about life outside elite sports outweighs what a continued dedication to sport would mean.”

“What I will miss the most is the kick of being in shape,” says Charlotte Kalla.

During the Swedish Championships week in Piteå, four competitions are planned for Charlotte: 10km tomorrow on Wednesday, 15km mass start on Thursday, Relay 3x5km on Sunday, and 30km on Monday. After the 30km race, a fabulous career is over.

Since her debut on the national team in 2006, Charlotte won nine Olympic medals: three gold and six silver. Thirteen World Cup medals: three gold, six silver, and four bronze. The list also includes victory in the Tour de Ski 2008 and a total of 59 podium places in the World Cup, of which 12 individual and relay victories.

Add to that, 28 individual Swedish Championship golds before the end in Piteå.
