Cloé Deschênes, Bronte Dundas top Canadians at trampoline World Cup in Portugal

Deschênes, ranked fifth in Canada, and Dundas, sixth, placed 22nd and 26th respectively in a field of 46 competitors for their best results so far in World Cup competition.

“I’m happy with what I accomplished,” said Deschênes.  “It was my best score at a World Cup competition and I know that I can do better next time.”

The Canadian men’s team, led by 2008 Olympic silver medallist Jason Burnett of Toronto, didn’t get past the preliminary round in either the individual or synchro events.

Burnett, working his way back into top form after major knee surgery last year, wasn’t able to complete his optional routine and Keegan Soehn of Red Deer, Alta, ranked second in Canada behind Burnett, injured his back in the syncho prelims with brother Kyle and withdrew from the individual event.

Kyle Soehn competed in the individual event, but like Burnett, failed to complete his optional routine in the prelims.

“A tough day for our men’s team but they are very confident they will bounce back at the world championships next month,” said Canadian high performance director Stephan Duchesne of Montreal.
