Katherine Driscoll – GOLD – Snr Women – 2019 British Trampoline Championships
This Olympic event requires a ten-element routine, which must start and end on the feet consisting of differing numbers and shapes of rotations and/or twists performed on a trampoline. The competitions are made up of three routines.
This sport is similar to Individual but performed by two trampoline gymnasts (on separate trampolines) attempting to be mirror images. Extra scores are evaluated on the degree of difference between performances.
Double Mini Trampoline (DMT)
This is a powerful and exciting sport. Trampoline gymnasts compete in four passes, two preliminary and two final passes for the leaders. Each pass consists of two skills, the first performed on either of two areas on the apparatus followed by the dismount onto a landing mat.
Internationally, it is part of the Trampolining discipline, however in the UK it sits within the Acrobatic Gymnastics family. It’s a spectacular sport combining speed, rhythm, spatial awareness, co-ordination, power and strength. Tumbling requires eight elements including straight and twisting somersaults along a 25m track.
