Everybody Bounce Now

Bouncin's what Aussies do best!

Off the back of a fantastic bronze medal effort by the men's team (up from 5th, just what we like to see!), Australia's trampoline gymnasts booked themselves finals berths for further medal chances at the World Championships in Bulgaria.

Two members of that blushing bronze team, Blake Gaudry and Ty Swadling, finished among the top 24 to make the individual men's semi-final, but landed outside the top 6 for further contention (20th and 16th respectively).

Olympian Gaudry and Will Morris will team up for the men's synchro final

Get some insight directly from the event via Blake's Twitter and Facebook.

Our double mini team are there flying the flag, too. Unfortunately no individuals made finals. but the men's team finished a commendable 8th after qualifications. Full results can be found here, and detailed commentary from GA is here, while a few videos are below courtesy of the FIG.
