Rosie wins Worlds

Two-time Olympic gold medallist Rosie MacLennan of King City, ON stood on top of the podium on Saturday afternoon in St. Petersburg, Russia after claiming gold in women’s individual trampoline at the 2018 FIG Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships for only the second time in her career.

The battle for gold was clearly between Xueying Zhu of China and MacLennan who entered the final ranked one and two respectively. Zhu actually outscored MacLennan in the final, but was given a 0.2 penalty for taking too long to begin her routine leaving MacLennan with the higher score overall. Zhu ended up with the silver medal while Yana Pavlova of Russia captured the bronze medal.
