Olympics | setter Lindsey Berg to retire after London

According to an article by sportswriter Anne Peterson of the Associated Press, Lindsey Berg plans to retire at the end of the London Olympics.

Berg and Courtney Thompson are the USA’s two setters. 

Berg has been on the National Team since 2003; she was also on the Olympic roster in Beijing. 

The University of Minnesota graduate from Honolulu tells Peterson “I’ve had an incredible run,” but admits “It’s not as easy as it looks.” She also reports that her knees hurt “all the time.”
