Lucas’s teammates reacted with disbelief to the farewell.
“You can’t do that,” answers French skater Yohan Clary. “Guys like you are so important to our sport. Hopefully that won’t be permanent.”
Braathen has been at loggerheads with the Norwegian Ski Federation for some time. He recently promoted another clothing brand.
“If that’s the case, I’ll marry you,” says former world champion Felix Neureuther. “And then you can skate to Germany.” “My wife won’t mind.”
“Oh, no. We need your samba on the slopes,” says Italian Christoph Innerhofer.
