Day 3: Sport Specifies

Activity 1 Day 3: Sport Specifies

Trampoline Gymnastics

The aim of the game is for the athlete to bounce on a trampoline up to heights of eight metres and while the athlete bounces they start performing acrobatic actions and are rewarded points for difficulty, execution and flight time. Also each competitor does 2 sets of 10 acts and the competitor does single, double or triple somersaults some with and without twists in it.

  1. Hi Mikaela!

    I am so sorry but for some reason my previous comments haven't yet appeared on your site. I feel terrible because it looks like I haven't been reading your posts but I have been! They are great :) I hope that it is just a technical issue that can be fixed and then you will be able to see all of my comments :)

    In the meantime, I really wanted to comment on this post because I absolutely love trampolining. In fact, it is one of my all-time favourite sports. It's very popular in Canada. We have a great coach for our national team (Dave Ross) who trains a lot of athletes who eventually make it to the Olympics. Everyone gets very excited to watch them compete!

    I hope that you will also get to watch some trampolining this August when the coverage starts for the Rio Olympics :)

    Cheers, Rachel
