“The Future of World Trampoline is Right Here”
Recent Youth Olympic Games gold medallist, Dylan Schmidt stepped up for his first international competition as a senior individual at the Trampoline World Championships in Daytona USA last night.
Dylan entered the semi finals with a new personal best score and finished in 15th place – a New Zealand best in World Open Championships. A top 16 spot will be a guaranteed Olympic place at next year's' qualifying World Champs.
As the announcer on the FIG Live site said today, "This is the future of the sport right here."
Emerging talent Kierran Tuhi performed with Dylan in the synchro pairs competition with their personal best preliminary score putting them in the history books as the first NZ male pairing to ever make a synchro final, where the pair placed 7th.
Congratulations to both Dylan and Kierran for their World Championship achievements.
