Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist, Trampoline
As a child, Rosie MacLennan often tagged along to her older siblings’ trampoline lessons aching for her chance to shine. And shine she did. Now the current two-time Olympic champion and reigning Pan American Games champion in the individual trampoline event, Rosie 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, Rosie 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, Rosie 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, Rosie was selected as Canada’s flag bearer at the opening ceremonies, and again took a gold medal for her individual trampoline performance.
Rosie is a recent graduate of 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.
