Bouncing about 23 feet in the air, trampolinist Rosie MacLennan is a gold medalist.
“You’re basking in Olympic glory again. How much different was it winning this time, or was it any different?” asks Bruce.
“It was incredibly special because in a sport, especially like trampoline, you never know what’s going to happen,” says MacLennan.
At a young age, it was MacLennan’s parents who encouraged her to join trampoline.
“My parents kind of talked me into a lot of sports as a kid along with my siblings, and trampoline just happened to be one of them,” says MacLennan, adding that they had a trampoline in their backyard they used to bounce around on.
Bruce asks how she felt being chosen to hold the Canadian flag in the Olympics.
“That was an amazing experience,” she says.
MacLennan then recalls a moment of pure joy and anticipation.
“Right before when we go into the opening ceremony stadium were standing in a tunnel and it’s the first time all of Team Canada is together,” she says. “I got the chance to wave the flag in front of our incredible team with everyone chanting Canada, singing our national anthem. It’s just a moment where so many dreams come true.”
