Gold Rush in Bulgaria for Australian Gymnasts
Australia’s winning streak at the 36th FIG Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships has continued overnight, with New South Wales’ Ethan McGuinness crowned World Champion in Men’s Tumbling overnight.
McGuinness, known globally for the difficulty of his routine, secured the title with a pass that scored 28.900, with a difficulty score of 11.500, whilst none of his competitors had a difficulty score above 10.
Training out of the Kachan School of Tumbling, McGuinness secured the Australian National Championship title in May, before winning Gold at the Trampoline World Cup in Rimini, ITA a fortnight later.
His teammates at Kachan have also had spectacular results in Bulgaria, with Cheyanna Robinson adding a Bronze Medal in the Women’s Double Mini Trampoline to her Gold she secured in the Team division yesterday.
Fellow Kachan tumblers Koralee Catlett and Breanah Cauchi also qualified for the Women’s final, with Catlett securing the Silver and Cauchi finishing in 4th place. Both women are just 17 years old, competing at their first ever World Championships, with an incredibly bright future ahead of them.
Ethan McGuinness – Gold Medal
Koralee Catlett – Silver Medal
Breanah Cauchi 4th place
Cheyanna Robinson – Bronze Medal
