During the 2021 Virtual Canadian Championships in trampoline gymnastics, national team member Rémi Aubin captures first senior title in Individual Men’s Trampoline category. The gold medal winner for senior women’s trampoline was fellow national team member Sophiane Méthot. The format for Canadian Championships is based on the cumulative score of preliminaries and finals.
In the discipline of tumbling, Mitchel Pedersen captured the gold medal during the 2021 Virtual Canadian Championships.
“I am honoured to be named to the national team for tumbling and double-mini trampoline, and I am working hard for the opportunities that will come,” shared Pedersen when asked what it means to be named to the 2022 Trampoline Gymnastics National Team.
Internationally, senior national team member Rémi Aubin had the opportunity to travel to Colombia in November as a member of Team Canada for the Junior Pan American Games. After qualifying first in the men’s trampoline gymnastics competition at the Games, Aubin was named a flag bearer for the closing ceremonies. This was his first opportunity to represent Team Canada.
At the 35th World Trampoline Gymnastics Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan, we saw Canada bring home the bronze medal in the women’s double-mini trampoline event. National team members Gabriella Flynn, Hannah Brown, and Zoe Phaneuf competed in the event.
National Team member Sarah Milette finished 8th overall during the Women’s Individual Trampoline Final in Baku. “I am very happy to be named to the National Team this year. I’m really looking forward to competing and building on my performance at the world championships,” said Milette.
