Greene Retires!

Maurice Greene, who announced his retirement Monday, carried the flag after winning 100 meter Olympic gold in 2000.

Former Olympic and world champion Maurice Green surprised the track world by announcing his retirement on Monday, after two long seasons plagued with injuries.

On retirement Maurice said, “I don't think I can have that mental battle with myself coming back from injury any more. It takes a lot out of you mentally ... you start getting down and then you get depressed."

The Kansas City native won’t be bored though. Reportedly he’s to pursue coaching and business interests. Recently, he launched Mo Entertainment, a hip hop record label.

The track biz is a buzz!
