US Olympic skier Zamansky retires from racing

PARK CITY, Utah – Olympian Jake Zamansky is retiring from the U.S. Ski Team.

The last race for the 28-year-old was the giant slalom at the Vancouver Games, where he finished in 31st place.

Zamansky, who’s from Aspen, Colo., was a member of the U.S. development team at 17. He won several U.S. championship medals, along with the NorAm overall title in 2006.

He earned a spot on the Olympic team by scoring World Cup points at competitions in Beaver Creek and Val d’Isere, France.

Keely Kelleher of Big Sky, Mont., also announced she was stepping away from skiing to attend Westminster College in Salt Lake City.

Kelleher, 25, has had a career marred by injuries. She won super-G title at the U.S. Alpine Championships in March.
