Unsurprisingly, Jon Schwaiger took the men’s tumbling title for the second year in a row. Schwaiger has been on fire on this event in 2019, taking first at the Elite Canada competition earlier this year. He showed his complete dominance on this event once again, scoring a 145.200 to take first place, 11.4 points over the second-place winner. Antonio Fernandez scored a 133.800 to take second, and Michael Zeuner took third with a 123.800, another 10 full points behind.

Synchro

Women’s

Gabrielle Briand-Brière and Laurence Roux took first place in the synchronized trampoline competition, together scoring a 124.950. Mariah Madigan and Mariko Nagano trailed behind with a 109.490 to take second place, while Domenica Cirone and Kalena Soehn scored a 98.980 to take third. 

Men’s

Jeremy Chartier and Keegan Soehn took first place on this event, scoring a 126.800 together. Second place went to a score of 120.570 from Gavin Dodd and Blake Mould, and third place was given to Erik Arruda and Ethan Love for a score of 108.600. 

Trampoline

Women’s

Samantha Smith won the 2019 women’s trampoline title, and probably has the most fun success story of the competition! 

A long-time tumbling and trampoline competitor, Smith won the Canadian Championships in 2009 for trampoline, but since then hasn’t managed to snag first place again. She has come close, even taking second place at the 2018 Canadian Championships, but has been just short of this title many times. 

Ten years since 2009, it was Smith’s turn to win once again! She took first place with a score of 158.195, just above Sarah Milette who scored a 157.985. Rachel Tam took third place with a 152.795.

Men’s

Keegan Soehn was not satisfied with just a first-place finish on synchronized trampoline, so he went and took home the first-place title on individual trampoline as well! Soehn scored a 56.895 to take home first, finishing well over second place. Benjamin Lagacé took second place, scoring a 56.430, and Jake Cranham took third with a 56.090.
