AMHERST – Felicia Landry finished her gymnastic career over the weekend and is officially retired.

Landry attended the Atlantic Gymnastics Championships in Charlottetown where she won Team Nova Scotia Gold, and finished fifth overall and sixth on vault in the Open 2 Division.

“Fifth is good but I messed up. I could have done better,” said Landry.

Landry’s best event is usually the bars.

“I messed up on the bars, on the high bar, and I wobbled a lot on the beam as well,” said the 17-year-old Grade 12 student at Amherst Regional High School.

Landry often struggles with her floor routine but says she was proud of how she performed on the floor at the Atlantics.

“I did a good back-tuck flip on the floor,” she said.

She says retiring from competition is sad but hopes to continue judging at competitions.

She attends Mount Allison University in September but hopes to coach at the Aerials Gymnastics Club as much as she can.

“It will depend on my work load as university,” she said.

Asked what she will miss most about competing Landry said, “I’ll miss the joy it brings me, and being here with everybody.”

Landry started gymnastics when she was three-years-old.

She says being a gymnast has been a great experience and hopes more people give the sport a try.

“Even though it’s a tough sport I’d recommend to anybody because of the joy it brings and the way it’s made my life better.”
