According to the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association on Tuesday, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Alexandre Bilodeau's motto is to "always look forward".

On Friday, according to NBC Sports, the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association confirmed the retirement of Montreal's Bilodeau, the Olympic gold medalist in men's moguls from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. Bilodeau retires at the age of 26.

According to Julian McKenzie of the Link Newspaper, Bilodeau's future short term plan is to return to university, where he plans to take four classes at Concordia University in Montreal with the long term goal of earning a degree in accounting.

Over the last few years, Bilodeau has juggled academics and athletics, and took a full year off from moguls in 2012 to take a full course load at Concordia.

Now that Bilodeau has retired, the door has opened for Mikael Kingsbury of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Quebec. It will be interesting to see if Kingsbury, who won an Olympic silver medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, will take one step up on the podium at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang.
