Trampoline development history
- Sep 14, 2018 -

The history of the trampoline dates back to the Comanche Indians of North America in the mid-19th century, while the Chinese circus acrobats used a similar trampoline for at least 200 years.

The founder of the modern elastic trampoline is the French acrobat Du Trampolin, who used a hemp rope to create a protective net to strengthen the safety of the "air swing trapeze" and use the elasticity of the net to throw the actors into the air and complete each Kind of action. In the 1930s, American diving champion George Nissen produced a trampoline similar to today's, used to help his diving and flip training, and later founded the "Nissens trampoline company." During the Second World War, the United States used the trampoline to train the pilots and pilots' positioning skills and achieved good results. Later, it gradually became a sport, which was widely carried out in middle schools and universities in the United States. In 1947, the United States held the first national trampoline exhibition in Texas. It was included in the official competition in 1948 and later introduced to Europe. In 1958, the United Kingdom began the All-British Trampoline Championship. In 1964, the first World Trampoline Championship was held in the United Kingdom. In 1969, the first European Trampoline Championship was held in Paris, France. In 1999, the International Trampoline Federation became an association of international gymnastics, and became the official competition in the 27th Olympic Games in 2000. There were two male and female projects, and 12 athletes from each project participated in the competition.
