'Bittersweet' end for ski veteran Cochran, of Keene

Two-time Olympian Jimmy Cochran of Keene skied his last race with the U.S. Ski Team on Thursday at the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships in Winter Park, Co. He led the slalom event after one run but couldn't hold on in the final.

Cochran skied in the 2006 and 2010 Olympics and three World Championships. The nine-year U.S. Ski Team veteran won four U.S. titles.

“For sure this is bittersweet, there's always more you want to do with your career, more that you want to accomplish, but I feel incredibly fortunate in being able to have ski racing as a part of my life,” Cochran said in a U.S. Ski Team release.

Cochran is a member of the “Skiing Cochrans” family. His grandfather was U.S. head coach in 1974, his father and three aunts were Olympians, and two cousins are current members of the team.
