Trampoline development history

Trampoline development history

The history of trampolines can be traced back to the Comanche Indians in North America in the mid-19th century, and acrobats in the Chinese circus have used similar trampolines for at least 200 years.

The pioneer of modern elastic trampoline is French acrobat Du Trampolin. He woven hemp rope into a protective net to enhance the safety of the "flying trapeze in the air", and used the elasticity of the net to throw the actors into the air to complete each Kind of action. In the 1930s, American diving champion George Nissen produced the kind of trampoline that is nowadays to help him with diving and incline training, and later founded the "Nessen Trampoline Company." The United States used the trampoline to train the positioning skills of pilots and navigators during the first national trampoline exhibition in Texas in 1947. Since 1948, the United States has used trampolines to train the positioning skills of pilots and navigators, and achieved good results. It has gradually become a sport in the United States. High schools and universities are widely involved. In 1958, Britain started the Ancient All-British Trampoline Championship, in 1964 in the British Antique World Trampoline Championship, in 1969 in Paris, France, the first European Trampoline Championship. In 1999, the International Trampoline Federation became an association of the International Gymnastics Federation and became an official event in the 27th Olympic Games in 2000. There are two individual events for men and women, with 12 athletes participating in each event.
