Australia’s double Olympic and 11-time world champion Anna Meares has announced her retirement from cycling aged 33.
Meares won six medals across four Olympic games, beginning with gold in the 500 meters time trial at Athens in 2004. She won gold in the individual sprint at London in 2012, silver in the same event at Beijing in 2008 and bronze medals at Athens and London.
She signed off with bronze in the keirin at Rio de Janiero last month where she also carried the Australian flag in the opening cermony.
