"Ich finde es super, dass die Kinder stundenlang auf dem Springfree Trampolin springen können, ohne dass ich Angst haben muss, dass sie sich am Rahmen verletzen oder herunterfallen. Springfree ist die sicherste Möglichkeit für Kinder zu springen, Spaß zu haben und fit zu bleiben – im eigenen Garten."
As the youngest of four, Rosannagh (Rosie) MacLennan often tagged along to her older siblings’ lessons. When she was 7, Rosie could no longer stand and watch from the sidelines and she finally got her turn on the trampolines at Airborne. When her brothers’ feet started hitting the roof, all four kids switched to Skyriders Trampoline Place where Rosie continues to train.
At age 11, Rosie began competing internationally and was the Canadian National Women’s Champion in 2005, 2009 and 2011.
At the 2007 World Championships in Quebec City, Rosie earned a spot for Canada at the Beijing Olympics alongside longtime friend, synchronized trampoline partner and fellow Olympian Karen Cockburn. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Rosie qualified for the finals and finished in 7th place.
Rosie’s journey towards the London 2012 Games included winning a gold medal at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, a second place finish at the Trampoline World Championships in Birmingham, and gold at the Olympic test event.
At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Rosie received a score of 57.305 for her final routine. With her score, she reached a new personal best and earned the gold medal.
Rosie is grateful for the critical support provided by her sponsors Springfree Trampoline and CAN Fund that allows her the opportunity to pursue the sport she loves.
Rosie is recent graduate of the University of Toronto with a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education and Health. Even off the trampoline, she remains active through some of her favourite sports like skiing, snowboarding, wakeboarding or dancing.
