Biography

Dong Dong of China’s high-flying and difficulty-packed routines have made him a favorite of trampoline fans and earned him two Olympic medals, a bronze in Beijing and a gold in London. He’s won the world championship title in individual trampoline three times, but in recent years he’s been eclipsed by other Chinese athletes. At the 2014 World Championships Dong settled for silver behind Tu Xiao, his frequent rival as well as partner in the non-Olympic synchronized trampoline event. At 2015 Worlds Dong fared even worse—despite finishing fourth in the semifinal round, he was not allowed to advance to the final round due to the two-per-country rule. Chinese athletes Gao Lei, who went on to win the world title, and Xiao Jinyu finished ahead of Dong in the semifinals.
