LSU’s senior gymnast Ashleigh Gnat has posted a video on social media, in which she casually lands an Amanar vault. Gnat was one of only three gymnasts this NCAA season competing a double-twisting Yurchenko, the others being Florida’s Alex McMurtry and Utah’s MyKayla Skinner, but the Amanar vault is on a league of its own for difficulty and danger, and no level 10 gymnast had ever been seen performing it – until today! What a way to end a formidable career!

Un post condiviso da Ashleigh Gnat (@ash_gnat13) in data:

Gnat is LSU’s most decorated gymnast, with over forty individual victories and nine perfect 10.0s. She is the 2017 NCAA national champion on floor, tied with Utah’s MyKayla Skinner, and the 2017 winner of the prestigious AAI Award.

Gnat posted her Amanar video, writing ‘NOW I can retire’. In this glorious way, Ashleigh Gnat bid farewell to gymnastics, after a fantastic career. She will remembered as one of LSU’s most successful gymnasts, as well as a very sensitive human being. LSU and the gymnastics world will deeply miss her!
