MacLennan captures silver medal at Trampoline World Cup in Baku

MacLennan, the reigning World and Olympic champion on trampoline entered the finals having qualified in third position, and improved the score on her optional routine to achieve a final score of 56.245, putting her in second behind Liu Lingling of China who took the gold with a score of 57.050. Chisato Doihata of Japan took the bronze with a score of 55.800.

“Overall I’m really happy with how the competition went,” said MacLennan. “I think leading into the beginning of the season it was a pretty strong performance, but it definitely leaves some room to work on for the next competition. I think for the next competition I’ll focus on putting a Miller into my first routine and making my second routine higher and a bit stronger and more stable. I think generally for the season I think it creates a strong base, and I’m really motivated and inspired by the other competitors so I’m excited to get back to the gym and to get back to work.”

Samantha Smith of Vancouver, BC finished 16th; Sophiane Méthot of La Prairie, QC finished 25th; and Sarah Milette of Longueuil, QC finished 33rd.

MacLennan teamed up with Milette to finish fourth in the women’s synchronized trampoline competition as well. Milette and MacLennan captured the silver medal in the synchro competition at the 2018 World Championships.

In the men’s competition, the top finisher was Jérémy Chartier of Montreal in 25th; Jason Burnett of Toronto was 31st, and Keegan Soehn of Red Deer, AB finished 71st.

Soehn and Chartier teamed up to finish 17th in the men’s synchronized trampoline competition.

The next World Cup competition for trampoline will take place in Minsk, BLR in April. The 2019-2020 World Cups are an opportunity for the highest-ranked participants in this six-stage series to earn a place for their country at the 2020 Olympic Games.
