Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist, Trampoline
Rosie MacLennan made history at the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio when she became the first trampolinist to ever win back-to-back Olympic gold medals. She also became the first Canadian athlete to successfully defend an Olympic title at the summer Games and the first Canadian woman to win two gold medals in an individual event at the summer Games. MacLennan speaks with passion about dreaming like a champion as well as on body image and health. She is also available for performances.
At the 2007 World Championships, MacLennan earned a spot for Canada at the Beijing Olympics, finishing in seventh place overall. That year, she was also the World Champion (with Karen Cockburn) in synchronized trampoline events. Her journey to the London 2012 Games included winning a gold medal at the 2011 Pan American Games in Mexico, a second place finish at the 2011 Trampoline World Championships in England, and first place at the Olympic test event.
At the 2012 Olympic Games, MacLennan received a score of 57.305 for her final routine. With her score, she reached a new personal best and earned Canada’s only gold medal at the Games that summer. In 2016, MacLennan was selected as Canada’s flag bearer at the opening ceremonies, and again took a gold medal for her individual trampoline performance.
MacLennan graduated from the University of Toronto with a bachelor’s degree in physical Education and health. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in exercise science at the University of Toronto.
