The 2013 U.S. Trampoline and Tumbling Championships took place July 4th-10th inside Kansas City’s Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, MO. The event featured competition for the Elite Division and the Junior Olympic Division for Levels 5-10 with athletes competing in trampoline, double-mini trampoline, synchronized trampoline and tumbling for both men and women. With more than 2,100 athletes from all of the US, this was a jam packed weeklong competition and the biggest U.S. Championships yet.

Kids World Gymnastic’s competitive Trampoline and Tumbling team called St. Louis Elite sent 12 athletes to this event, claiming a total of 2 Gold, 3 Silver, and 2 Bronze medals. The top 8 athletes in their level and age group make the podium. Our team also had 2 Fourth place, 1 Six place, and 2 Seventh place and 1 Eighth place finishes.

“I knew our athletes had a good shot of placing. They train incredibly hard with strong drive and determination. At an event this big, with the best talent across the US coming to claim a Medal, pressure is high. I am incredibly pleased to see all of this hard work payoff! These athletes deserve the recognition and continue to impress me every season with these huge accomplishments!” said Head Coach Gene Kohler
