TORONTO (June 19, 2012) – Springfree Trampoline, the world’s safest trampoline, today announced its sponsorship of brothers Steven and Jeffery Gluckstein, members of the USA Gymnastics team competing in Trampoline. The Gluckstein brothers are currently the top two American contenders for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, and are vying for the only spot on the U.S. Olympic Trampoline team.
“These brothers have an undying enthusiasm and dedication for the sport that captivated our team the first time we met,” said Steven Holmes, Chief Bouncing Officer of Springfree Trampoline. “Their dedication to trampoline safety, from people jumping for fun in their own backyards up to athletes at the Olympic level, was a natural fit for us.”
Steven, 21, and Jeffrey, 19, have won four U.S. Trampoline Championships combined. The brothers will be competing in the final Olympic trials in late June, to determine who will compete for the gold medal on behalf of the U.S. for the 2012 Olympics.
“This is the perfect partnership for us and for our young fans,” said Steven Gluckstein. “Springfree Trampoline shares our love of the sport and offers families a way to experience the fun of trampolining at home while staying safe.”
According to the brothers, the point of trampoline safety is a critical message they want to share with families across the country.
“We depend on hours of training and the safest equipment to help us achieve our goals,” said Jeff Gluckstein. “Springfree Trampoline proves there is a way for trampolines to be safe while still having fun, right in your own backyard.”
The agreement with Steven and Jeffery marks an expansion of Springfree Trampoline’s growing roster of Olympic trampolinists, which already includes Canadian contenders Karen Cockburn, Rosie MacLennan and Jason Burnett.
Springfree Trampoline offers a one-of-a-kind design that removes 90 percent of the product-related impact areas known to cause injury on traditional trampolines. The design is specifically constructed to reduce major risks typically associated with spring-based trampolines, including hitting the springs or frame, falling to the ground and collision with rigid enclosure poles.
