Summary

China came in with the two favorites as Lu Chunlong had won the 2011 World Championships and was the defending champion, and Dong Dong was World Champion in 2009 and 2010, after placing third at the 2008 Olympics. Dong qualified first and in the final had the highest difficulty and execution scores to win the gold medal comfortably. In the final round, Lu had the highest time of flight score but dropped back on execution and would settle for the bronze medal. The silver went to Russian Dmitry Ushakov, who had been sixth at Beijing, but easily bettered Lu in execution and equaled his difficulty score to move ahead of him. Canada’s Jason Burnett, silver medalist in 2008, landed too close to the trampoline edge on his second skill, and wisely aborted his routine, dropping him to eighth and last among the finalists.
