Summary

The favorite was the 2000 gold medalist, [Irina Karavayeva] of Russia, who had won five World Championships, including both the 2005 and 2007 titles. But Karavayeva, despite a very high difficulty tariff of 14.7, placed only fifth. She made some errors in her voluntary elements, including a major error when she landed outside the designated area. The gold medal went to China’s [He Wenna], who had placed fourth at the 2007 Worlds. Canada’s [Karen Cockburn], 2003 World Champion, won her third consecutive Olympic trampoline medal, duplicating her silver from 2004, added to her 2000 bronze. Defending champion [Anna Dogonadze] (GER) fell in her final routine, and finished last in the final. All the three medalists performed a forward triple somersault with half twist (He and Cockburn twice), and multiple twisting double somersaults in tucked, piked and straight positions.
