Rosie MacLennan

2012 Olympic Gold Medalist & 2016 Team Canada Olympic Flag Bearer

I love that kids can enjoy hours of fun exercise on the Springfree Trampoline without the worry of falling through the springs or hitting the frame and falling off. Springfree is the safest way for kids to jump, have fun and get fit, right in their own backyard.

As the youngest of four, Rosannagh (Rosie) MacLennan often tagged along to her older siblings’ lessons. When she was 7, Rosie could no longer stand and watch from the sidelines and she finally got her turn on the trampolines at Airborne. When her brothers’ feet started hitting the roof, all four kids switched to Skyriders Trampoline Place where Rosie continues to train.

At age 11, Rosie began competing internationally, and since then her competitive performance has demonstrated that she is a rising star in her sport.
