In 2018, Louis broke the news he was retiring from gymnastics for a more permanent move to the theatre.

Louis said of his retirement: “It was a very tough decision. I think last year I had the mindset that given the time around now I’d get back into training and push towards 2020.

“Then certain situations arise, the qualification process has changed, there’s a very minuscule chance I’ll even qualify. I thought I’d give it a chance.”
