Olympic, world and European champion Krisztian Berki has announced that he is retiring from competition.
The decision, Berki said, was due to the fact that he was struggling to recover from a persistent shoulder injury. He last competed on the international stage in 2017.
The 35-year-old Hungarian’s career saw him win gold in the pommel-horse final at the 2012 London Olympics, following a tie-break decision over Great Britain’s Louis Smith.
Berki was also world champion on three occasion and also won six European championships golds.
He will now become as sports director of the Hungarian Gymnastics Federation.
