Bobridge retires with arthritis


SYDNEY: Australian three-time world track champion Jack Bobridge quit the sport Wednesday aged just 27 with rheumatoid arthritis taking a heavy toll.

The reigning Australian national road champion, who also has two silver medals from three Olympics, was diagnosed with the chronic condition in 2010.

He left Europe and a professional contract with Trek-Segafredo in September citing family reasons and fatigue following the Rio Olympics in August.
