The Canadians were one of five teams that qualified for Thursday’s final, but began the day in fourth place.  Two-time Olympic champion Rosie MacLennan and Sarah Milette helped bump Canada up to third with the top team score in the women’s synchronized event.

This was the first year that a world championship event included the team all-around competition. The event combines individual trampoline, synchronized trampoline, tumbling, and double-mini trampoline, with both men and women competing in each discipline.
