Canada’s MacLennan wins bronze in trampoline world championships

TOKYO — Two-time Olympic gold medallist Rosie MacLennan of King City, Ont., captured bronze in the women’s individual trampoline event on Sunday to wrap-up the 2019 Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships.

Canada leaves the competition with three bronze medals, an Olympic qualification spot in women’s trampoline, and four quota spots for the 2021 World Games in tumbling and double mini-trampoline.

MacLennan, a gold medallist at the last two Olympic Games in London and Rio, entered the individual trampoline competition as the defending world champion. She scored 54.820 points to take the bronze.

Japanese women earned the top two spots on the podium. Mori Hikaru of Japan took gold with a score of 55.860 while Chisato Doihata won silver with 55.225.

Samantha Smith of Vancouver was seventh.

“I decided to go with a slightly easier routine today, and to just keep it high and clean, and I think it paid off,” said MacLennan. ”I was able to feel a little more stable on the trampoline and I was really happy with it.

“I came into this competition trying to focus on one day at a time, and to put out the best routines I could and I was able to do that. And to be able to come out with a medal is really unbelievable. I’m really excited to get back home and get back training and keep pushing for the World Cups next year.”

Toronto’s Jordyn Miller-Burko finished eighth in the women’s double mini-trampoline final.

Canada was fourth in the team all-around competition.
