According to the Canadian Olympic Committee on Tuesday, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Brian Price of Belleville, Ontario announced his retirement from competitive rowing at the age of 38.

A coxswain, Price was in the boat when Canada won a gold medal in the men's eights rowing competition at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and a silver medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Price also won a gold medal as a coxswain in the men's eights competition at the 2002 World Rowing Championships in Seville, the 2003 World Rowing Championships in Milan and the 2007 World Rowing Championships in Munich.

As a child, Price was diagnosed with leukemia, and the drug he needed to take to kill the cancer, stunted his growth.

Interestingly, Price has also competed internationally for Australia, and won a World Cup silver in Lucerne, Switzerland in 2000.

Price is an engineering graduate from Seneca College, so it will be interesting to see if he pursues a career in the engineering field.
