The final day of the 2019 Trampoline, Tumbling and Double Mini Trampoline World Championships saw tumbling sensation Elliott Browne retain his world silver medal and cap a brilliant championship for Great Britain. Elliott once again demonstrated his high difficulty to take the silver and add a fifth medal to the tumbling team’s haul from this event.
He said after: “I’m absolutely buzzing! I went into the final open minded, with the focus to complete my two routines and stay on my feet. I left the big routine for my second pass and the tactic paid off. The quality gets better and better each year – it’s immense. I’ve got even more to offer and things I’m working on. Of course I’m really happy with retaining the silver but I’m always pushing and will be doing everything I can to chase the gold next time!”
Elliott really attacked the tumble track and got big height on his skills, ending his first pass he took a step back on landing for 38.000. For his second pass he produced huge difficulty and posted a mammoth score of 39.200 giving him a final score of 77.200 and the world championship silver medal once again.
Competing alongside Elliott and making his senior debut, Jaydon Paddock performed with confidence and completed a huge first tumbling pass, getting big height off his final skill with just a small step back on landing to score 38.400. His second pass was completed cleanly though lower on difficulty scoring him 37.200 for a total of 75.600 points and 5th place.
