China wins new T&T Worlds Team

The Chinese team won gold over Portugal and Canada … in the first All-around Team Final at the 2018 Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships in Saint Petersburg (RUS).

The new All-around Team format unites all four events for men and women — Individual Trampoline, Synchronised Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini-Trampoline — with all five teams in the final competing eight routines total. The team totals were calculated based on a point system for the ranking of each event, with the top score on each event earning 5 points and the fifth-best score earning one point.

China finally sent Double Mini competitors to Worlds simply to be able to compete (and win) this new prize.

Actually, USA, Portugal and Canada all had 24 points.  By virtue of the tie-break process that calculates a team’s scores by adding the actual scores, not placement, the USA landed in fourth behind Portugal and Canada …

(Rosie) MacLennan praised the new team event and the camaraderie it brought to the gymnasts competing together.
