Trampoline Creator Witnesses Olympic History In Sydney

Sep 10, 2009

Did you know that the Trampoline was invented by a champion American gymnast called George Nissen, who thought it might help him with his training?

He created the prototype trampoline from angle iron with a canvas bed and rubber springs in 1935. From there the Trampoline has come along way! The Springfree™ Trampoline is the new generation design taking the world by storm. Everyone loves to jump on a trampoline and now they can do it safely with an award winning Springfree™ Trampoline!

Nissen had always wanted to have trampolining included in the Olympic Games and this finally happened in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. The very first Gold Medal was awarded to Russian, Irina Karavaena and George Nissen was there in person to witness this historic event at the age of 86.

What’s your favourite Olympic memory?
