    I know Brigetta Barrett has been noted as retired on this board a few times, but I have yet to see any link or source confirming it.

    I just read Powell's post on this meet that he isn't done yet.

    Back in... 2012! He went over 21m in 2014 too but this is his farthest in four years... and indeed he is retiring, but he has three meetings left.

    That's true, Obergfoll is four years older (so a whole olympic cycle) but Stahl has a degree in Urology and a medical career in front of her. I also think she could have gone on another 4 years but that's all.

    Youth always wins. There is a natural time to hang em up and move to the next stage of life. I think it's exciting to watch the new kids on the block improve and become the top of the heap.
