Olympic champion Mathieu Giroux officially put an end to his long track speed skating career Wednesday.

The 28 year-old captured gold at the 2010 Vancouver games as part of the men’s team pursuit which included Lucas Makowsky and Denny Morrison.

“I am very proud of what I’ve accomplished and the person I’ve become through all these years of training,” said Giroux in a release from Speed Skating Canada.
