    Speed skater Lee Sang-hwa has decided to put an end to her glorious career.

    Her management agency said on Friday that the two-time Olympic gold medalist will officially announce her retirement at a press event in Seoul later this week.

    Since winning a silver medal at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province last year, Lee has not competed in any events due to injuries.

    She was undergoing rehabilitation until recently but apparently wasn't able to fully recover her form.

    Meanwhile, Lee recently revealed that she has been dating singer Kang-nam.
