She's a three time Olympian and has been racing for Canada for 12 years now, but Thursday morning, Prince George's Megan Tandy announced her retirement.  In a post on Instagram, the biathlete, who lives in Germany, explained she'll be stepping away from the sport, prioritizing her family, and finishing her master’s degree. The announcement comes two weeks after Tandy announced she wouldn't be racing this month in order to care for her son full time. The Olympian's career highlights include a Canadian best eighth place in the women's relay at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi and cracking the top 30 in her four individual events at the 2015 World Championships. Tandy says she won't be packing away the skis completely, saying there's lots of snow to be enjoyed in Germany right now.
