Golenkova recently accomplished the biggest success of her career when she won a downhill gold medal and a Super G bronze medal at the University Games in Italy.
She was not considered a medal contender for the Olympics in Sochi, which will begin in February, but would have likely participated in the Russian alpine ski team, R-Sport reported.
Golenkova, who debuted at the World Cup last month, is the reigning Russian national champion in downhill and Super G events.
