Taking On The World In Style

It was the first official training of the season when our coach at the time announced that trampoline would make its debut in four years at the 2000 Olympics. I remember feeling so inspired, and hoping maybe one day I would get to represent my country at the Games... well I haven't quite got there yet, but I am so proud to know that I am part of a nation wide community that makes up one the strongest countries in trampoline gymnastics in the world.

Yes, trampoline and fashion do not really go "hand in hand," but in my view they do. Women in athletics are the most inspiring people both in sport and everyday life. Karen Cockburn and Rosie MacLennan are two of many Canadian women who are healthy, fit, and stylish.  They may spend 90% of their day in runners, Lululemons and sweaty ponytails, but underneath the sweat and spandex is two women with chic style! With their chiseled arms, washboard abs, and rock solid legs {this is very true, I once touched Karen's quad, it was just muscle and skin), these ladies could make a paper bag look good! Karen and Rosie are Canada's top trampoline athletes, and will be taking on the world this Saturday in the best outfit I can think of... red, white and a whole of spandex!

Rosie rocking out on her banner! Can you say, "rockstar!" 

Jason Burnett will compete first for Canada tomorrow at 6AM Pacific Time.

Good luck to Jason, Karen, and Rosie the country, and trampoline community will be cheering loud and proud for you! Go get'em!

Anita, xo
