MEN’S DOUBLE MINI-TRAMPOLINE
Austin White (USA)
GOLD – FINALLY – FOR AMERICAN WHITE
After three individual World silvers in Men's Double Mini-trampoline, 27-year-old Austin White pulled out all the stops to take gold in what will be his final World Championships. Not only did the American throw triple saltos with seeming nonchalance, he stuck them cold. Even Russia's double World champion Mikhail Zalomin couldn't top that, and was forced to settle for silver. With two less difficult but well performed exercises, Australia's Matthew Weal edged Spanish daredevil Daniel Perez, he of the quadruple back salto, for bronze.
WOMEN’S DOUBLE MINI-TRAMPOLINE
Erin Jauch (USA)
Erin Jauch more than lived up to her status as World champion in Denmark. The American landed her full-twisting double layout pass smoothly, conserving her World crown with class. With two more difficult but less precisely executed passes, Britain's Jasmin Short again took silver, while with bronze, Lina Sjoeberg gave Sweden its first ever medal in women's DMT.

Team podium: Canada, USA and Russia
RUSSIA MAGISTERIAL, CANADA AT THE TOP
In the qualification round, the four Russians -- Mikhail Zalomin, Alexander Zebrov, Alexander Odintsov and Andrei Gladenkov -- ranked among the top eight. Little surprise then that the team final was little more than a formality for the Russians, who carved out a large lead, leaving the U.S. and Canada to share silver.
For the women, the chase for the gold was much tighter. Thanks to the excellent performance by young Danielle Gruber, the Canadians regained the title that had escaped them in 2013. The British, between the Canadians and bronze medallist Americans, made their first-ever World podium appearance in Women's Double Mini team competition.
