    I know Brigetta Barrett has been noted as retired on this board a few times, but I have yet to see any link or source confirming it.

    She ended her career badly. NH in front of her home crowd. I thought she would change her mind and go on another year.

    She was injured. Tried to come back and it didn't work out. I think she is ready to be done. She's 35 and probably has other things she wants to do with her life. Vaulting in pain isn't fun.

    she was cited as such way back in the August edition of the magazine, but I don't know the sourcing (think it was somebody in her coaching chain)

    Does Wiki count?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigetta_Barrett

    >> Coming back on the track in February 2016 where she only managed to clear 1.84 m, she decided to retire at the age of 25 and to concentrate herself on her own business.<<

    Aussie LJer Mitchell Watt announced his retirement this week via Facebook. He walks away with two major silvers (2012 OG and 2011 WC), two bronzes (2010 WIC, 2009 WC) and the Oceania record: 8.54m

    Great talent but never managed to get rid of a series of injuries. He tried to come back many times, jumped indoor this year, but with bad results. Similar to Italy's Andrew Howe (7.50m this year) or Sebastian Bayer.

    I added Jennifer Meadows to the list, even if she has pacemaker duties today in Zurich. She said she was going to hang up her spikes so I suppose she is just postposing it to the end of the season.
