Three-time world freestyle wrestling champion Martine Dugrenier announced her retirement due to an arm injury on Wednesday.

The two-time Olympian from Montreal was coming off a pair of surgeries on her left arm and said she was no longer able to compete at a high level.

“I would have preferred the Walt Disney scenario and have been able to compete at one last Pan Am Games and a world championship,” the 35-year-old Dugrenier said. “I was hoping up to the last minute, but physically, it was impossible to go on.”
