OTTAWA - Amelie Lacoste, a longtime member of Canada's figure skating team, is retiring from competition.

The 25-year-old from Delson, Que., was the 2012 Canadian champion and finished 16th at both the 2011 and 2012 world championships.

"This was a difficult decision for me, but I am excited to start a new chapter in my life," Lacoste said in a release. "I'm very happy with all that I have accomplished. . ."

Lacoste had a fifth- and sixth-place finish on the Grand Prix circuit this past season, and won bronze at the Canadian championships.

She's unsure of her immediate future, but plans to stay connected to skating.

"(Lacoste) worked with great desire and determination to achieve her goals, and pursue her dreams," said Mike Slipchuk, Skate Canada's high performance director. "We are pleased she plans to stay involved in skating, and look forward to keeping her engaged now as a member of our national team alumni."
