Lake Placid Olympic biathlete Haley Johnson has decided to retire.

Johnson, who competed in her only Olympics in 2010 in Vancouver, most recently was a member of the U.S. World Cup Team.

Johnson began her career as an alpine skier at the National Sports Academy in Lake Placid and then switched to cross-country.

After high school, she attended Bates College in Maine for two years, before putting her schooling on hold to pursue the sport of biathlon.

She made the U.S. Biathlon Team for the first time in 2007.

"I took a long time to think about the decision and feel this is simply the right time," Johnson wrote the Enteprise. "I am looking forward to how my involvement in skiing will evolve over the next few years, especially as I move to Colorado. I am excited to finally move in with my fiance and to return to school this spring."
