Competing in his sixth and last Winter Olympics, pioneer luger Shiva Keshavan wants to overcome a recent injury and end his international career with a flourish during the Pyeongchang Games, starting this week. Keshavan, who has represented India in every Winter Olympics since 1998, has decided to call it quits after taking part in the February 9-25 event. "Age wise I think I can continue. Even two medal winners in 2014 Sochi edition were above 40. I have represented India for 22 years, but now I think I need to move on and focus elsewhere," Keshavan said. "So this Winter Olympics will be my last one, this will be my last international event."
