Canada will not attend PanAms

Though I feel rotten for the Canadian athletes who trained an extra year for their last shot at qualifying for Tokyo, I agree with this decision.

As you know, in recent days Canada has had the worst COVID numbers of any English speaking nation in the world.

Gymnastics Canada has made the very difficult decision to not enter teams in the upcoming 2021 Senior Pan American Championships being held in Rio de Janeiro, BRA between June 4-13, 2021 and the 2021 Junior Pan American Championships slated for Guadalajara, MEX (artistic), and Guatemala City, GUA (rhythmic) due to health and safety concerns resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic. …

The Senior Pan American Championships were Canada’s last chance qualifier event for the Tokyo Olympic Games in men’s artistic, women’s artistic, and rhythmic gymnastics. …

“We realize the impact these decisions have on our athletes, especially those senior athletes that have dedicated so many years to their ambition of competing at the Olympic Games,” added Moss. “We will do everything we can not only to support all athletes and coaches impacted by this decision through this difficult period, but to also provide hope and opportunity moving forward towards their international goals in the future.”

Athletes and coaches did have the opportunity to appeal this decision, and GymCan went through the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) arbitration process with these individuals to show transparency around the decision. The result of that appeal, which ruled in GymCan’s favour, was delivered to all parties on May 6th, 2021.

History of Trampoline

Greg Roe posted a long, entertaining interview with legendary builder Ron Munn.

I learned a lot.

Ronnie, Pan American Games Trampoline Champ, worked with George Nissen, the co-inventor of the Trampoline.

Ronnie eventually married George Nissen’s daughter, Dagmar.

George and the famed Larry Griswald at University of Iowa constructed the first trampoline.
