LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) — Two-time U.S. Olympian Eric Bernotas has retired from skeleton, ending a 10-year racing career.
Bernotas found the sport by accident in 2001, getting lost on a drive through the Adirondacks and ending up at the Olympic Sliding Complex near Lake Placid. He became a full-time slider shortly afterward.
He retires with 12 World Cup medals, a silver medal from the 2007 world championships, four U.S. national crowns and Olympic appearances in 2006 and 2010.
The U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation announced his retirement Saturday.
