Trampoline Gymnastics is a category in Gymnastics. However, it is a separate event at the Olympics, and rightfully so. The sport is no joke as it requires prime fitness and focus.
Gymnasts perform their routine on a synthetic trampoline pad. The trampoline is 4.28m x 2.14m in dimensions. Gymnasts perform a variety of aerial stunts including backflips, somersaults, and twists. The routines are futile and require extreme precision as the sport poses injury threats.
The performances are then judged by a panel of judges on the basis of difficulty, originality, flight time, horizontal deviation, and precision.
