PARK CITY, Utah (USST Press Release)—Olympian Tom Rothrock (Cashmere, WA) has retired after eight seasons with the U.S. Ski Team, Alpine Director Jesse Hunt said.

Rothrock, a 2002 Olympic skier and former Western regional slalom and giant slalom junior champion, had four World Cup top-10 results in his career. He was named to his third consecutive World Championships Team this past winter. He and wife Angie are the parents of a young son, Preston, who was born last summer; they live in Cashmere.

"Tom's been a great teammate, an outstanding slalom skier, and we're going to miss him, but he's got other opportunities and we wish him the best of everything," Hunt said.
