VIENNA, Austria, September 25. OLYMPIC bronze medalist Mirna Jukic has decided to call it a career according to Krone.at.
Jukic, who won the bronze medal in the women's 100 breast at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, finished her career with a trio of bronze medals at World Championships (two long course, one short course). She dominated the breaststroke events in Europe with three gold medals in long course events at the European Championships as well as a pair of short course gold medals.
