IAAF.org: Szabo confirms her 2004 decision to rest will remain permanent

2005-05-17

Former women’s World and Olympic 5000 metres champion and multiple World record breaker Gabriela Szabo of Romania is retiring from athletic competition, the 29-year-old confirmed today.

The decision to retire comes 14 months after the middle distance running legend exclusively announced on the IAAF Website that she was to cancel her entire 2004 season due to exhaustion.
“Everything has to come to an end,” Szabo told Reuters. “Too much hard training, too much competition stress, that's enough.”
