Canadian trampolinist Jason Burnett to Beijing

I am very happy to report that Jason has secured the Canadian spot in the Olympics. He’s done more crazy things on trampoline than anyone else in history — but has had an inconsistent record in competition. I was afraid he might not qualify for 2008.

For example, here’s his 10 triple somersault routine on Super Tramp.

That was Jason age-18 in 2004. A wonderkind.

The Canadian woman, not surprisingly, will be Karen Cockburn who took Bronze in both 2004 and 2008. Both are coached by Dave Ross.
