Meet Jason Burnett, our Canadian Springfree ambassador who is a proud olympic athlete and has competed in both the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games for trampolining. On his Springfree Trampoline, Jason Burnett is eighth on the world leader board for the most seat drops in one minute.
A seat drop is by no means an easy feat! By definition, a seat drop is: from the standing-up position, the performer must land in a flat sitting position, with the hands being placed on the mat beside the hips and from that position returning to the standing up one by propelling him/herself with the hands.
The record for the most seat drops on a trampoline in a minute was set at 49 by Oleksander Nakonechny from the Ukraine in September, 2010. People from all over the world have attempted to beat the challenge, and the record currently stands at 51 seat drops in one minute!
Did you know:
- The record for the most consecutive somersaults on a trampoline is 3333, and was set by Brian Hudson from the United Kingdom in 2003
