American former World and Olympic champion Maurice Greene announced his retirement from track and field on Monday.

“Today I’m officially announcing my retirement from the sport,” the 33-year-old American told reporters in Beijing.

“I don’t think I can have that mental battle with myself coming back from injury any more … I want other people in the sport to shine.”

The 33-year-old Greene made the announcement in Beijing, which is hosting this summer’s Olympic Games. The American has been one of the sport’s dominant figures of the past decade, winning both the 100 metres and 200 at the 1999 World Championships in Seville, Spain.

He won a third gold medal in the 100 relay, placing him alongside Tyson Gay and Carl Lewis as one of only three men to win triple gold.
