    The Wonderful Thing About Trampoline Is...

    What can I say? It's a bouncy sport after all and I could *not* resist.

    Anyway, the true high flyers take over the arena where the Artistic Gymnastics have been holding court so far. Canada's got three legitimate chances at medals starting tomorrow and I can't wait to watch it!!

    I would so lose points for going "WHEEE!" every bounce. I know nothing at all about this sport but it looks like fun.

    I find this one easy to follow the scoring and Kyle Shewfelt did a great job explaining it!

    Three scores - flight time (calculated by a laser based on when the trampoline is not depressed) + degree of difficulty (predetermined based on skills in the routine - adjusted if anything left out) + execution (stay in the rectangle with the cross, arms should be straight at sides or straight beside ears, no breaking in body, speed of twists, etc.) = Total points

    Great sport!

    ETA: There is an athlete that whistles the whole time! LOL

    Seems one sport that favors those nosebleed seats. The height they get is .

    ETA - my childish side is giggling over Dong Dong.

    Why are the last two guys' scores so low?

    One guy tanked his second routine; I'm guessing the other tanked one too.

    LAst two who competed or the guys ranked 15 and 16?

    ETA: 15 and 16 ranked - neither finished their routine. If they hit the springs, they are done. Unlike artistic, they can not remount and continue.

    for Burnett. Ugh. Today was supposed to be a big day for Canada, but unfortunately what could have been three medals likely won't be any. Feel bad for Jason.
