Two-time world champion Perdita Felicien retires

Two-time world champion Perdita Felicien retires

By Asif Hossain

On Thursday, Canadian 100 metres hurdles national record holder Perdita Felicien announced her retirement from competition.

Felicien represented Canada at the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Olympic Summer Games. She is a two-time world champion and holder of 10 Canadian national titles.

The 100 m hurdles record of 12.46 was set at Eugene, Oregon in 2004 and still stands at the time of her retirement.

The 33-year old from Pickering, Ontario “will begin a new adventure as a videographer for Hamilton’s CHCH” according to an Athletics Canada release.

More reactions poured in from athletes on Twitter.

A local and national treasure, Felicien trended in her hometown and Canada-wide. 

Finally, a well-earned treat.
