Ellie Black does NOT have retirement scheduled

Despite this misleading headline, Ellie is not planning to quit after Tokyo.


Already a two-time Olympian and one of Canada’s best female gymnasts ever, it’s easy to wonder when she might be done.

And Black at just 23-years-old is used to facing questions about when she’ll hang up her grips.

“I always say age is just a number,” said Black.

“As long as I’m enjoying gymnastics and I’m loving what I’m doing, why not keep doing it?”
