Augusta native and former Olympian Julia Clukey, announced her retirement from the sport of luge earlier this week. Today (Aug. 11) she took time to join us on the Moose Morning Show, to talk about what led to her decision and what is next for her.

Julia is so proud of her work with area schools as a motivational speaker, as part of her “Julia Inspires” campaign. Also, for the past five years, she has run 'Julia Clukey’s Camp for Girls' on Maranacook Lake in Readfield. More info at
