French skier Tessa Worley has confirmed she will retire at the end of the 2022-2023 International Ski and Snowboard Federation Alpine Skiing World Cup season.

The 33-year-old, a double giant slalom world champion in 2013 and 2017, has taken part in 254 races during a 17-year career.

Worley, who also won team World Championship golds in 2011 and 2017, announced her retirement following the Alpine Skiing World Cup in Soldeu, Andorra, at the weekend.

The Frenchwoman claimed 16 victories with 36 podium finishes in her World Cup career, with two small globes, that were earned in 2017 and 2022.

Despite her success, she was unable to clinch a Olympic medal.

She missed out on the Sochi 2014 Olympics after a right knee injury in December 2013.

In the last race of her career, she finished 11th, putting the finishing touches on the longest women's World Cup circuit career in history.

Paying tribute to Worley, the French Ski Federation wrote: "A queen bows out, thank you for everything Tessa Worley."
