Did Team USA qualify for Olympic trampoline?

The United States will send two athletes to the 2024 Paris Olympics for trampoline. 

World bronze medalist Jessica Stevens secured a U.S. quota spot for Paris during the second round of women’s individual trampoline competition at the 2023 Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships. The U.S. earned a quota spot in the men’s event at the World Cup in Cottbus, Germany thanks to Tokyo Olympian Aliaksei Shostak, who was the top American in eighth place. 

The team will be announced at the conclusion of the USA Gymnastics Championships from June 21-26 in Minneapolis, MN.  

Who are the athletes to watch for Olympic trampoline?

From the United States, two-time Olympian Nicole Ahsinger is a strong contender to make a third Olympic appearance in Paris, while Tokyo Olympian Aliaksei Shostak is vying to make his second Olympic appearance in Paris. 

Other U.S. contenders include world bronze medalist Jessica Stevens, who secured the U.S. quota spot for Paris at the 2023 Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships. Tokyo Olympic alternate Sarah Webster is another strong contender who will be vying for a spot in Paris as well. 

Bryony Page of Great Britain should be in the medal mix in Paris, having won two world titles since Tokyo, including in 2023 when she upset Olympic champ Zhu Xueying of China. With a silver medal in Rio and a bronze in Tokyo, the only medal Page is missing is Olympic gold. Although Xueying will be hungry to defend her title in Paris, a feat only Canada's Rosie MacLennan has achieved. 

On the men's side, Yan Langyu of China has emerged as a strong medal contender since Tokyo, winning gold in the individual event at the world championships in 2021 and once again in 2023. His teammate, Wang Zisai, won the silver medal and will be one to watch as well. Both finished in the top two at the Cottbus and Baku World Cup events to kick off 2024. 

Other names to watch include Tokyo Olympic medalists Ivan Litvinovich from Belarus, who won gold in Tokyo and will be competing under the Individual Neutral Athlete (AIN) flag, and bronze medalist Dylan Schmidt of New Zealand. 

How do you qualify for Olympic trampoline?

A total of 32 athletes, 16 per gender, will compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics. Athletes qualified through three different routes. Up to three countries could receive two quota places per gender. The remaining countries could receive a maximum of one quota place per gender.

  1. 2023 World Championships: The eight highest ranked men and the eight highest ranked women in the finals earned a quota spot, with a maximum of one athlete per country
  2. 2023-24 Trampoline Individual World Cup series: A series of five competitions, where the athletes are awarded points based on ranking. The best-three results are considered for Olympic qualification. The highest-ranked male and female athletes based on the Olympic qualification ranking list that did not previously qualify through the world championships earn a quota place for their country. For countries who qualified a spot at the world championships, the three highest-ranked athletes from the Olympic qualification ranking list may qualify a second quota place for their country.
  3. Continental Championships: The highest male or female athlete based on the finals from continental championships earn a quota place for their country, not factoring the countries who have already qualified through the first two routes
