Gymnasts To Watch At Elite Canada Trampoline & Tumbling

Canada's best trampoline and tumbling gymnasts are set to compete at the 2019 Elite Canada trampoline and tumbling competition from May 3-5 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  All three days of competition will stream live here on FloGymnastics. The meet will include competition in individual and synchronized trampoline, tumbling, and double mini-trampoline. 

With more than 200 gymnasts competing, there's a number of athletes worth watching, but there are certainly standouts to keep an particularly keen eye on.

Jeremy Chartier (Trampoline)

The 2018 Youth Olympian is coming off a top 25 finish in synchronized and individual trampoline at the 2019 Baku World Cup. He finished 17th individually and 25th with partner Benjamin Lagace in synchro. Chartier made his senior debut last year when he helped Team Canada win team bronze at the World Championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. Last year, he won the individual trampoline competition at the Junior Pan American Championships and was the Canadian junior trampoline champion.



Jon Schwaiger (DMT/Tumbling)

Schwaiger is another member of the bronze medal World Championships team and is the reigning Canadian senior double mini trampoline and tumbling champion. He's a national team veteran and has been representing Canada in international competition since 2010 when he won tumbling silver at the Pan American Championships. In his six World Championship appearances, Schwaiger has won five medals, including team gold in double mini in 2011.


Samantha Smith (Trampoline)

Smith is a 2012 Olympian as she was an alternate for Canada in trampoline. She's coming off a World Cup appearance in February where she finished 16th in women's trampoline in Baku and began her qualification process for Tokyo. In addition, she had a great 2018 season, including an 11th place finish in trampoline at World Championships, 16th place in individual trampoline, and 11th in synchronized at the Loule World Cup, and a silver medal at Canadian Championships for individual. Smith is another veteran with a wealth of international experience with seven World Championship appearances and three Pan American Championship appearances.
