Double Olympic Champ Rosie MacLennan

IOC posted a terrific interview with Rosie. She’ll be contending for Gold medal #3 in Tokyo

“Dave (Ross) and I talked about routines after Rio, and he was like, ‘I just want to see you do cool things, whatever about the medals’.

That brings the joy again,” said MacLennan, who will compete in the Japanese capital 81 years after her grandfather was denied a place at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 1940 by the outbreak of the Second World War.

Trampoline themed card game

Kyle Soehn, former member of the Canadian National Trampoline Team, is promoting a card game where players put together Trampoline skills … while sitting at a table.

Here’s how it started:

When the Covid-19 pandemic forced our gym to close and, like many of you, I suddenly had a lot more time on my hands. My wife and I started playing card games in the evenings, since our normal hobbies had stopped. While playing another card game, I had a thought that there aren’t any trampoline or gymnastics themed games available.

I set to work outlining the framework for a card game based on trampoline skills. After several iterations and trials, we came up with a simple and fun game that anyone could play. The game is called ‘2 Trick Spectacular’ and is loosely based on the 2 trick spectacular trampoline competition.

I knew that this game would be hit when I was playing with my mother-in-law (who is not a trampoline enthusiast), we ended up playing rounds back and forth for over an hour. I was happy to see that without any exposure to the sport of trampoline that you could learn the game quickly and find enjoyment.

From there, I started working with suppliers to see if I could get the game made. It took some time but I finally found a supplier that met my quality standards and allowed me to order a small order of 100 decks.

My goal for this project was to create a fun game based on trampoline that anyone could play. I hope that one day I am able to see a group of kids huddled together at a competition playing this game.
