Jeremy Bloom retires from moguls skiing

BY foxsports • November 11, 2009

The 2002 and 2006 U.S. Olympian said on Wednesday that he was retiring because "the passion that I once had for sports has naturally transitioned into my new ventures." He had announced about a year ago that he would try for his third Olympics.

Bloom plans to focus on the foundation he started, Wish of a Lifetime, and also hopes to do color commentary on college football games. He had a brief NFL career after playing at Colorado.

He finishes with 11 World Cup wins and two World Cup titles. He finished sixth in moguls at the 2006 Olympics and ninth in 2002.
