800 artists were included in the Cirque du Soleil production. Quite well done, I thought.

On the Canadian TV coverage announcers tried to explain the artistic vision behind each act. Bewildering to me. I prefer watching Cirque dance and acrobatics without trying to follow the plot. :-)

Schwaiger and the other tumblers pulled out some great tumbling off Air Floor Pro.

1965 World Trampoline Tumbling Champs

Trampoline Pundit:

An amazing coincidence: Precisely 50 years later, film of the 2nd World Trampoline and 1st World Tumbling Championships has been discovered. On January 30, 1965 the event was held in London at the Royal Albert Hall and now film of the momentous occasion can be shared with the world.

It was uncovered recently by a retired school teacher who found the film reel in his attic. As an enlisted man in the army, he was given the canister by the base’s film projectionist. The recently retired projectionist wanted to put it in the hands of someone with an interest in trampoline, so he gave it to the future educator, who stored it all these years.

Ted Blake and George Nissen, the competition’s sponsors, had commissioned the 25 minute, 16 mm film to promote the sport of trampoline. …

In the film, you don’t just see the great routines of the Champions of the day – Judy Wills, Gary Erwin, Frankie Schmitz, Wayne Miller, Beverly Averyt and more, but tumbling fans finally get to see the very first World Championship tumblers! …
