KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Double gold medalist Tina Maze of Slovenia says the Sochi Olympics will be her final Winter Games.

The 30-year-old Maze, who tied for victory in the women's downhill and won the giant slalom, says "this is my last Olympics. This is it."

Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany, who won the super-combined, has also said she would not return for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics.

Maze completed her fourth Olympics in the slalom on Friday. Her eighth-place finish was her worst result in five events.

Maze also won two silver medals at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, in super-G and giant slalom.

In a difficult season defending her overall World Cup title, Maze says "the only thing on my mind was this Olympics."
