TOKYO (AP) — Olympic medalist and two-time world champion Shoma Uno of Japan is set to retire from figure skating.

The 26-year-old placed fourth in March in the most recent world championships. He announced his decision Thursday on social media, saying he’d been skating since he was 5. He has said it was getting more difficult to find motivation.

Uno took the silver medal in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, and was third in the 2022 Winter Games at Beijing.

He is expected to formally announce his retirement at a ceremony on May 14 in Tokyo.
