  3rd WC Trampoline in Coimbra /Portugal  (26.-28. June 2022)

* * Japan dominated the Trampoline finals at the World Cup in Coimbra (POR), taking three gold medals, a silver and two bronzes, with hosts Portugal matching their total medal haul of six.

With their ability to land in the centre of the trampoline with unerring consistency, Japan’s gymnasts earned some of the highest scores across both the Individual and Synchronised Trampoline events for men and women.

The men’s Individual title was won by the rising star, 18-year-old Nishioka Ryusei (JPN) whose incredible flight and difficulty placed him ahead of Portugal’s Pedro Ferreira and Diogo Abreu, who took silver and bronze respectively.

“In this tournament, I faced my own body due to injuries,” Nishioka wrote later on Instagram. “I will continue to do my best. Right now we are going to Switzerland for the next World Cup.”

In the women’s Individual event, the experienced Doihata Chisato (JPN) outscored the field with her execution and difficulty. She looked delighted to win the title ahead of Madaline Davidson (NZL) who took silver, and Sophiane Methot (CAN) who finished third.

Two more Japanese women won gold, with Tanaka Saki and Sakurai Ena taking the Synchronised title ahead of the Portuguese pair, Ingrid Maior and Sofia Correia. The bronze medal went to the Swedish star Lina Sjoeberg and her partner Alva Lemoine.

The New Zealand partnership of Olympic Individual bronze medallist Dylan Schmidt and Reegan Laidlaw won gold in the men’s Synchronised event with a superb display of synchronicity, thereby preventing Japan from taking a clean sweep of the Trampoline gold medals. Instead, Nishioka Ryusei and his partner Ishikawa Yamato (JPN) had to settle for silver, ahead of bronze medallists Jeremy Chartier and Remi Aubin (CAN).
